Would this be considered cheating

Okay I have a new job as a talent scout and my job is to talk to as many people as possible so that they would be encouraged to come to register with my agency. Would It be considered cheating if I posted a message to several respected message boards (not this one though this ain’t the place) where I’ll be to increase my chances of a high turn out? Would I be breaking any laws?

As long as you don’t say something in your postings like “You will be hired if you come see me tomorrow” you should be OK.

I don’t think it’s so much a matter of law as policy of the MBs you plan to post on. Some may see this for what it is - an employment advertisement - and if they normally charge for employment ads, they’d likely be unhappy with you if you posted ina free section.
