The very fine print

You've probably seen the ads -- post your resume on Monster.com and you double your chances of getting a job.

Sounds good.

But, it's double your chances of getting a job compared to Monster users who do not post a resume, not compared to all job seekers.

Here's the fine print: ComScore Networks, Inc. custom research 10/05 shows that Monster users who posted a resume
were twice as likely to get a job offer as Monster users who didn't post.

Thus raising the interesting question as to why you would be a Monster user and not post a resume, isn't that the whole point?

That's the same as the instructions on a package of food, where it says "open box". Duh...
