Guaranteed Employment

How the scam works:

Similar to the Job Placement for Students scam, this one comes from companies that promise you “guaranteed employment” if you use their program. This means that you will have to pay for specific mandatory “training courses” or so-called “workshops”, which also means you will spend your money feeding their “business” and keep it going.

The trouble is studies suggest approximately 5% of these companies actually are legitimate.

How to avoid:

At a rate of 5%, it's a gamble. Only go for it if you actually know someone personally who found a job through them. Rely only on reputable companies to keep you in the loop about openings in your field. In the meantime, if you are really looking for a job and seek to make some money until you find the next ideal job, there a couple of other options for employment online. They are trustworthy and have a great online reputation:
