    I don't understand how someone could pay that amount for a resume... I'm betting when they state "Hence you will receive $15 EVERYTIME your resume is selected and paid" means that people pay to see your resume. Who would do this? What’s to stop someone from posting fake resumes?

    This just doesn’t make sense on many levels.

    -
    When your resume is selected and paid for by the employer, you will get 30% of the revenue generated.
    Yeah?

    Don't ask me. I am as clueless as you're about this program - there is something very suspecious about it.

    Companies spend big money recruiting employees, especially the really big companies. I'm not familiar with the website, so cannot say whether they are legit or not. But from what I read on that page it seems to me that they allow employers to search through their resume database for free, or if not for free it is probably some fairly low yearly fee. After that, employers have to pay $50 to get the contact info for the resume of any specific individual. That type of service could probably save employers money. They could pay the $50 for only the people with resumes that seem to make them be a perfect fit for the company. There's no guarantee to the company that the individual would be hired or even want the job... but it's only 50 bucks. Compare that to the several thousand dollar fee's that are paid to headhunters when they refer someone who is hired.
