Job Applicant QuestionsCategory: ApplicationShould I pay to get a job?
Nelson L Staff asked 7 years ago

I found a website that said they would help me find a job if I paid them $25 a month. Is this worth it? I don’t mind paying, just was wondering if it was legit?

Having someone on your side to help with the job search is encouraging, but this is most likely a scam. At best, it’s an unnecessary cost for you. There are job recruiters and employment agencies out there, but they are paid by companies looking for candidates, and you should never need to pay them. If a site or agency is asking you to pay them for a chance to get a job, it’s best to stay far away from them. Either go with a recruiter that’s being paid by companies in need of employees, or use the many free resources that are out there.
