What Search.careerjobsearch.co? And how does it function?

Search.careerjobsearch.co is yet another suspicious search engine developed by Polarity Technologies Ltd., which is one of the companies known to develop a lot of browser hijackers, adware and potentially unwanted programs and unsurprisingly, Search.careerjobsearch.co is also under two of those categories. It is no wonder that it is categorized as an adware since it behaves like one.

Search.careerjobsearch.co is a search engine that orients at unemployed users who are looking for a job but it also caters to lots of sponsored contents like pop-ups, links and banners that appear time and time again when you use this search engine. In addition, it is also supported by advertising companies. When you go to the News section, you can get distracted by the Revcontent ads besides the articles. Even if they may be displayed by legitimate advertising platform, the content and the frequency of these ads can be bothersome.

Search.careerjobsearch.co includes links to sites like Indeed, Glassdoor and Monster. It may look useful, especially for unemployed users. However, this search engine might gather your information and share it not only with employers but also with third parties. Since it most unemployed users utilized this tool, they share their personal information, even confidential ones as they are applying for a job. The information shared is at risk of being shared with third parties who might use the information for their own gain. According to the search engine’s Privacy Policy:

“We share information with employers and others who may have access to Monster’s resume and profile database. We share your information with third parties who help us deliver our own products and services to you. These third parties may not use that information for any purpose other than assisting us in providing those products and services.”
