Someone I do not know had my personal email address in his contacts and I, too, was "Invited" to join Skillpages. I clicked the link in the email to unsubscribe my email address from any further "Invitations" - and Rated these email address thieves as Do Not Trust Right away on WOT. Do not fall for this scam masquerading as a "Social Network" or "Employment Site"!

Java applet grabs user's contact lists and spams the contacts. Block *@skillpagesmail.com to stop the SPAM. To stop SkillPages from grabbing contacts from users' contact lists, block Java applet by blocking this on your firewall or proxy: “http://dyjab6i3qfxan.cloudfront.net/20121210.6/Resources/Internal/ContactsFinder/ContactsFinder.jar”.
Never allowed them to access my mail accounts so no issue of spams for me. Site really helped to find some job and also hire some students when our studio had extra editing works. Hope they fix the spamming thing.
I'd go as far as saying this site is sending out trojan emails. Click the link, they spam all your contacts. If WOT continues to give this site a pass, it will encourage other startups to start doing the same.
Upon sign-up, they asked if user wants to send invites. That did not happen, they sent invitation anyway whether I agree or disagree, to all my email address contacts, including those whom I wouldn't even dare send any invitation to anything. That's embarrassing to my part. I sent them a message complaint, I did not receive any response.
My account page was clogged with seemingly random comments often promoting the usual spammy web stuff "SEO help" etc. I could not see a good employer ever looking for someone there.
