  • On Thursday, March 4, 2004, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), U.S. Department of Labor's (DOL) Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), proposed guidelines for clarifying the meaning of a job "applicant." The new guidelines are a result of the thousands of unsolicited resumes received by employers and recruiters via the Internet and related electronic data-processing technology from job seekers posting resumes on line, notwithstanding the absence of specific job openings.
