Employ Media sTLD Charter Amendment

Dear Chairman Dengate Thrush and Members of the Board:

I am writing on behalf of Bio-Partners Search Group, 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. 

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. 

 

Sincerely,

Chris Wellington
