Dear Chairman Dengate Thrush and Members of the Board:

I am writing on behalf of JobServe USA Inc  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 that operate job posting and resume
search databases has effectively served working men and women and
employers in the USA. 

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

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.
