Want a new job? Get poached.


(Screengrab: JobPoacher.com)
Today in job-related news bombardment: D.C. area workers are among those logging on to a site that lets people put themselves in front of job poachers.

Brand-new site JobPoacher allows users to post their location, current salary and desired gig anonymously, and Tech Crunch reports that more than 500 postings and more than 100 e-mails have been sent from job recruiters in the past 24 hours.

“I’m a Java Developer, and I currently make $70,000 in Virginia,” reads one posting.

“I’m [an] Assistant Art Director, and I currently make $93,000 in Washington, D.C.,” reads another.

And considering that Washington is considered the place to be when it comes to projected job growth, plenty of users appear to be using the service to seek District area gigs from afar. Employers: Go ahead and consider this one a blessing and a curse.
