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 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 
Katrina. They have, in every respect, acted as "the Sources of Success," 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, 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.
