Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed this company “Kalo” popping up on LinkedIn. They post job opportunities and usually lead with titles like “Freelance Designer for GoPro” “Freelance Graphic Designer for ESPN”.
Basically freelance (insert design related position) with (insert well-known, cool company). In each of the job descriptions it mentions this company Kalo.
I thought it seemed fishy so I never looked into the job postings. Well today, LuLuLemon posted 5 different design related jobs on indeed in my city (where they do not have an office or headquarters). I saved the jobs, not that I am a fan of LuLuLemon, but I know the popularity of that company and would be interested in a position with them.
Just a little bit ago I went to apply to the LLL jobs on indeed, which were posted about 5 hours ago, and all were taken down off of indeed. I decided to use my indeed app instead since I had saved the jobs to my profile, as I suspected the jobs were still there but when I clicked on them it took me through a series of redirects all the way to Kalo’s website.
Did indeed delete these job postings because Kalo is a scam? Most of Kalo’s job postings sound too good to be true, but they are very detailed and appear to be well thought out.
When you go to kalohq dot com, it presents the company as a freelance marketing software that helps companies manage and pay freelancers. I could not find anywhere on the site anything about joining their network as a freelancer. The entire site was dedicated to selling this software to companies. And the site touts working with companies like Google, ESPN and GoPro.
So this was kind of long winded but I felt the explanation was necessary. I can’t find anything online about Kalo, no reviews, no scam reports, nothing. Has anyone hear of this company and are my suspicions accurate that it’s some sort of elaborate scam? I know there are resume farming companies out there, but I don’t really understand the benefit of hording a bunch of resumes.
