Bloody Vikings^WAgencies

I really don't know what's happening to online recruitment meta-agencies. Once upon a time, you used to have to be a reputable recruitment agency to be allowed to advertise positions in places like Jobserve, Jobsite, CWJobs and so on (incidentally, if anyone knows of any other good meta-agencies I mightn't have come across, do please let me know).

However, today I spotted the thin end of a wedge that's already destroyed (if that's not too mixed a metaphor) many of the paper-based job hunting resources.

Yes folks, this "position" isn't actually a job at all. It's an opportunity to parasitise your friends and neighbours, irritate car-owners by sticking leaflets on their windscreens, cover your local area with sad little stickers advertising a wonderful opportunity, and generally become assimilated by the Borg that is Herbalife.

And they're not even doing a particularly good job of hiding who they are - I guess things must be even more desperate in the MLM community (if I can use that word) than they are for us web-monkeys.
