Surfing the net for jobs? Be cautious

Among various other things, technology and internet has made job hunting a much simpler exercise. A job seeker can post his/her resume for millions of prospective employers to see with just a click of the mouse. But beware! Millions of benefits aside, the online job search also exposes you to the web of scammers leaving your personal data wide open to the world, who can do anything under the sun with those vital statistics. And the intentions of those people who access your data under the garb of potential job providers are not always good.
