9 15 Helpful tips to follow : Dont pay a fee upfront. Most legitimate employment agencies dont charge unless they actually succeed in getting you a job, and often its the new employer who pays. Be cautious about s offering help getting a job. Many unsolicited s are fraudulent. Information from: ms.htm

10 15 Helpful tips to follow : Know exactly what services are being offered. The company may only provide advice or help writing a resume. Document all promises. Print out the information so you can prove what you were promised. Information from: ms.htm

11 15 Helpful tips to follow : Be wary of promises to help get you a government job. If a test is required, the government usually conducts it. Money-back guarantees may not be worth the paper theyre written on. Fraudulent employment services will use an endless string of excuses for why youre not entitled to a refund. Do your own research. Use the public library, newspapers, the Internet, and your state employment office. Information from:
