[Chicago] Three Bilnd Mice ChiPy job board Idea

Even though you're not giving out contact information, any head hunter
worth his snuff is going to find it. Someone with a resume "good"
enough to be "married" will probably have a few things stand out that
a recruiter could use on google to find that person's email.

Our industry is unique in that we tend to be active on the internet.
This is different than a dating site where 99% of the participants are
not going to have anything more than a Facebook profile.

The idea itself is not bad, but I would not rely on the contact
information being hidden until marriage.
