I just received an unusual request from an agency based in Australia. They claimed they had obtained my CV from activehire.com, a website that I had never heard of before. They offered me the princely sum of $16/hour to join their global team of "freelancers and consultants" (the minimum wage here is $11).

The strange thing is that this website states quite openly that they copy CVs from other sites and promote this as an advantage. Apparently I am a "passive candidate" because I don't actively visit job boards and am therefore better qualified. Sounds like quite an interesting way of determining candidates qualifications!

Has anyone else heard of this type of operation? I've asked them to take my CV down - we'll see what happens.
