Iran cleansing policy: Monster.com confuses sanction with censor!

By Payman Arabshahi

The insanity does not stop - if you are an Iranian or Iranian-American who has the word "Iran" in your resume (for example, if God Forbid, you graduated from an Iranian university 30 years ago), that "line" in your resume will be removed - so you better start your new job search by lying to your future employer. Way to go monster.com!


Dear Monster job seeker,

This e-mail is to inform you about important changes to your MyMonster account. The U.S. Department of Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control, as well as some states, maintain sanctions which prohibit U.S. companies from conducting certain business activities with organizations located in or residents of the following countries: Burma/Myanmar, Cuba, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Sudan or Syria (the "Sanctioned Countries").

In order for Monster to comply with applicable U.S. federal and state regulations, we will be removing the Sanctioned Countries from the site. Your resume included one (or more) of the Sanctioned Countries. Therefore, your resume will be altered, removing all Sanctioned Countries from your resume(s). The removal of the Sanctioned Countries will be the only information changed on your resume; no other information will be affected. Please be assured that the confidentiality of your resume will remain at your discretion. Your resume will still be available in your account, and your current status will be unchanged.

This change will occur on April 24, 2003. We apologize for any inconvenience resulting from this change to your resume. Should you have any questions regarding this change, feel free to call the Monster Seeker Support team at 1-800-MONSTER. Thank you for using Monster!
