Just received a notice today when logged into mandy.com (As a standard member you are limited to 5 free applications per month, to apply for more positions this month you must upgrade to our premium membership or wait until August)
For anyone unaware mandy.com was bought by Bluecompass. They own FilmandTVpro. This is especially annoying since Mandy.com was the only real free job board for film professionals out there.
Some might say that mandy.com had nothing but crap on it but I've gotten some pretty legit gigs from it. And now, in order to apply to those same gigs, I must pay a subscription. Job boards are not supposed to be able to do this. You pay to list a job. Not to apply to one. For one thing, it's so disingenuous. How do you even know the jobs you're applying to are real? They could be entirely fake and designed just to keep people subscribing.
Anyone else disgusted by this?
