Tell Dice, Tear Down these Ads!

Fill out the form below to demand that Dice.com remove discriminatory job ads.

Employers are using Dice, a prominent US portal for high-tech jobs, to post ads with the unmistakable message, "No Americans Need Apply".  Most of the jobs were entry-level jobs--with free training.   Here's just one ad for a job in Plano, TX--but they only want foreign students to apply (OPT Only)!

This ain't right.  Our report of 100 Help Wanted ads collected on Dice shows these ads excluding Americans were peppered with an alphabet soup of visa terms that Americans don't understand.

While the US continues to have an overabundance of experienced, highly-skilled American IT professionals and new science and technology grads whom we’ve paid dearly to educate, a disturbing fact is revealed in the report—foreign nationals may also have high rates of unemployment.  A number of ads in the study mention temporary periods of unemployment, or offer non-existent jobs to the targeted foreign citizens.  Employers even advertised "guest houses" in 27% of the ads, presumably for those foreign nationals awaiting jobs.

SEND A MESSAGE TO SCOT MELLAND, CEO OF DICE:

"Until these companies go to 'EEO-Rehab', Dice must step in and remove all job ads that even have a hint of discrimination.  As you told PC World and Computerworld, you have a policy against this; now implement it."

One hundred job ads posted on Dice.com were published today in the report, "No Americans Need Apply": 100 Want Ads Exclude Americans from your job site.

The report shows ads excluding Americans were peppered with an alphabet soup of visa terms to attract foreign citizens on work visas using US Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) codes for these programs. Most of the jobs were entry-level jobs--with free training!

Until these companies go to 'EEO-Rehab', Dice must step in and remove all job ads that even have a hint of discrimination. As you told PC World and Computerworld, you have a policy against this; now implement it.
