Companies making similar offers may advertise high-paying job openings and imply that they have inside contacts through which they can find you employment. Their advertising is designed to make you think they’re an executive search firm. In reality, the extent of their services is to provide assistance with improving your resume, self-marketing, interviewing skills, etc. despite promises or implications of securing employment for you. Our experience with companies in this industry is that they misrepresent their ability to provide interviews, fail to secure employment for you through their claimed contacts, or do not generate job leads that fit the applicants’ qualifications. BBB recommends that you read your contract thoroughly before signing and make sure it incorporates any verbal representations or promises that you would expect the company to carry out.
