Paul Monaghan

Paul Monaghan claims to be a "Sr. HR Business Partner" at "NeuStar". Apparently, his responsibilities include "spamming people with LinkedIn invitations" at their "pseudonymous personal blog email addresses".

I have joined Paul's "network" and sent him a "recommendation", but he gets the chance to "approve" it before it is "posted", and I suspect he "won't like it", so I doubt anyone will "see it".

Would you trust Paul Monaghan of NeuStar to connect you with competent and reputable people?

who knows?

Me, I wouldn't work with a guy like that. In fact, the first time I hear from a recruiter, I always Google them to hear if they are reputable, or if they're the kind of person who spams indiscriminately in hopes of getting a bite from someone, anyone! It looks to me like Paul Monaghan is the latter.

Since the only Google hit for {"Paul Monaghan" NeuStar} is this here page about how he is a spammer, I think this is well and truly taken care of for the next person in my shoes.

(Paul Monaghan is not the new Jay Pipes. That would be really unfair to Jay Pipes, who is just a kibozing marketing droid backing a sloppy database product, not a spammer. Sorry to even put your name in this post, Jay, but these public callouts are so rare I can't help thinking of you again.)
