Dear Chairman Dengate Thrush and Members of the Board:

I am writing on behalf of MyOHR, 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. 

The separate and distinct communities of employers, staffing agencies,
third party recruiters, job boards, and even career services are 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,
nurse.jobs, 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 confusing the job seekers and employers who have long been the
customers of the community.
