Dear Chairman Dengate Thrush and Members of the Board:

I am writing on behalf of ZDA, LLC 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 registrations.

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 

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 

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.
