Job offer for a TRAITOR?!
Tue, 09-11-2012 - 5:38pm

Folks, every day I check the education job ads on Craigslist, because I've gotten some job interviews for teaching jobs on there, including the job I have now.  I check the ads for Toronto and Hamilton, ON; and Buffalo, NY- the latter because it's still within driving distance and I can legally work there as an American citizen.  Today, in the Buffalo ads, I witnessed something I consider to be an atrocity.  The ad was for a student loan bill collector!  They want people searching for education jobs, many of them themselves fretting about unpaid student loans (many recent graduates are more in debt than a lot of you older folks might believe- me included) to be TRAITORS!

Maybe it's just me.  Maybe I don't understand how badly the CEO of Sallie Mae, with his multimillion dollar income, needs his loans repaid.  But I do think it is just plain bad taste to put an ad like that in the education section.  For heaven's sake, we are educators, not blood suckers!!!!!!

Are you sure it was Sallie Mae? There are a lot of other agencies and banks that support student loans. I've never heard of anything like this online or in the newspapers etc..  I never completely believe a lot of what I find on Craigslist so maybe there is more to this than it appears.
