RE: Employ Media sTLD Charter Amendment 
Dear Chairman Dengate Thrush and Members of the Board: 
I am writing on behalf of UltimateInsuranceJobs.com, to urge you to reject  
Employ Media's request for authority to permit second level registration of 
 strings that do not correspond to an employer's name in the .jobs 
sponsored top  level domain. My organization would be directly and adversely 
affected by this  request and therefore opposes the unilateral expansion of the 
.jobs charter to  encompass regional and industry-specific second-level 
Since 1993, the community of online employment service companies--job 
boards,  associations, staffing firms, newspapers and other publications that 
operate job  posting and/or resume search databases--has effectively served 
working men and  women and employers worldwide. These same organizations have 
also significantly  improved the career prospects of veterans, minorities, 
disadvantaged persons and  those affected by natural disasters such as 
Hurricane Katrina. They have, in  every respect, acted as "the Sources of 
the trademark of the  International Association of Employment Web Sites  
(http://www.employmentwebsites.org), their only industry trade association. 
This community is now threatened by the proposed expansion of the .jobs top 
 level domain (TLD). The charter holder is attempting to extend the 
application  of the TLD from its approved community--direct employers--into the 
online  employment services community by introducing geocentric (i.e., 
Atlanta.jobs,  NewYork.jobs, Athens.jobs) and occupation specific (i..e, 
 salesperson.jobs, systemsanalyst.jobs) web sites. It now has a proposal to 
 implement this plan before the governing board of the Internet Corporation 
for  Assigned Names & Numbers (ICANN). 
This proposal violates both the spirit and the letter of the charter 
holder's  contract with ICANN. No less important, it will grievously harm the 
online  employment services community and therefore my organization by 
the job  seekers and employers who have long been the customers of the
