Job posting excludes unemployed

ATLANTA, June 1 (UPI) -- A Florida-based recruiting company said an Atlanta job posting excluding the unemployed is representative of a growing trend among employers.

Orlando-based The People Place posted an opening for a Sony Ericsson marketing position in Atlanta with a note at the end reading: "No unemployed candidates will be considered at all," WXIA-TV, Atlanta, reported Tuesday.

Howard Lawson, a recruiter for The People Place, declined to specifically comment on the posting, but he said there is a "growing trend" of companies seeking to only hire the currently employed.

An Atlanta recruiter unrelated to the posting said companies are employing talent search firms to help find passive job seekers, defined as currently employed people interested in taking new jobs.

The People Place's posting for the Sony Ericsson job was modified Monday afternoon to remove the note at the end, WXIA said.
