FindTheRightJob.com is a jobs database website that acts as an aggregate, collecting job postings from around the internet, including from other jobs boards and databases.
At Find The Right Job, they claim that “If you love your job, you’ll be 150% happier with your life” than compared to someone who does not like their job. Because of this, the primary goal of FindTheRightJob.com is to find you a certificate or degree program to help you get your dream job.
When you first sign up at FindTheRightJob.com, you will be given a questionnaire regarding your level of education and educational goals. Based on your responses, Find The Right Job will share your information with schools and certificate programs.
These schools and programs will then contact you regarding the potential programs they have for you. When you fill out the questionnaire, you are giving FindTheRightJob.com permission to share or sell your information.
If you do not want information regarding a certificate or degree program, then FindTheRightJob.com will provide you with a very basic, general list of job postings that meet your most basic criteria.
Often in order to find out more about the job postings, you will be sent to an entirely different website, many of which require you to enroll at their website to receive more information. So, unless you are interested in furthering your education, FindTheRightJob.com is not likely the best job source for you.
I'm having a hard enough time finding a job without these idiots using me for a scam. I did NOT want to put in my phone number into the website because I knew, I just KNEW they were going to spam call me. But in order to view the jobs on the site, it is a requirement. In complete seriousness, within 20 minutes I got a spam call from some guy in India (or he was just Indian, but probably the latter). When I asked if he got my number from the website I was just on, he said ' yes I am with findajob, and we used the number from the website ' . Do NOT give these people any of your information. Companies like this sell your info for profits, be prepared for many different spam call from many different companies if you do.
Why are things like this NOT illegal? Because some d*ckhead somewhere is making a profit off of your information.
Don't let that extra 50 dollars you got from Find The Right Job for writing a bogus review burn a hole in your pocket. You need to use it for gas money to go on a real job hunt. One that is respectful and doesn't hire bottom feeders or encourage that kind of behavior. I think I'm gonna give this comment 5 stars. Thank you very much.
First of all I have no idea how they got my info & second I'm gainfully employed. I have asked their telemarketers to stop calling me countless times only to be laughed at. I'm on the national do not call registry but this still does not phase them. I've filed several complaints but so far to no avail. These people are the scum of the earth! Oh, & by the way I have opted out on their website but still receive multiple phone calls daily.
I'm staying with a friend, now her phone is getting filled up with these scammers...all hours, am, pm, early, late...she has a job, please get off her phone!
i worked for "find the right job" for a little under a year when you need to make ends meet your desperate. it is nothing but a scam there is no jobs they tell you there going to send you a job list through email, thats a lie. that is a front for them to get to education so they can set you up with schools they have no intention of getting you a job. the companies real name is collegebound its all a scam do not go on their website you will never stop getting calls they work through an automatic dialer and it will never stop calling you. this company needs to be brought down. fuck you collegebound.
First off, I have a great job, and have a local school I am enrolled in. I have NO idea how these people got my number, it's quite annoying and creepy actually. Secondly, WHO the hell calls someone at 11:30 at night in NY to the west coast to talk about school or jobs??? Get outta here. I answered the phone in a strange accent and the idiot didn't get that he might have had a wrong number. The desperation of a scam is sad business. I think the people that work here should use their own services (that is if any service exists) and find a new job. I'm sorry to all those who don't have any employment or any education opportunities right for them that get harassed by companies like this that shouldn't be allowed to employ. Best of luck to all of you struggling and screw these people. I'm blocking the number and will wait for another call from a different number. swag.
Don't give out any information! Scam and many schools will call.
I went to the site and DID NOT enter my info, I simply did not trust it. The next day I received numerous calls asking if I am looking for work in my town. Don't know how they found it out, but they got my phone number. Scary.
The job website is just a way to generate education leads for their main company called Collegebound. Everyone who visits the job website is called by their callcenter and asked if they would like to further their education.The call reps are paid for each school the person requests info from. Search engine marketing at its worst...
I recently went here for a friend who got a phone call upon the site loading I received no less than 15 virus' and 2 keyloggers avoid this place at all costs
These jerks called me on Sunday morning - they are bottom feeders that get their info from other websites that have given them your name. Don't talk to these people!
Terrible, pushy, unprofessional & rude. Just because I'm searching for a job, I should not have to put up with being hassled daily by a group looking to solicit something else entirely. I was called 2-3 times a day by this number, & when I answered there was no one on the line. When I got fed up & called them back to ask to be removed from their call list, I received no response from the person on the other line & was hung up on again. So I called back AGAIN to make sure I had the right company to block, & was greeted by a laughing, giggling female this time who already knew my name, since the phone numbers are tagged, who spoke to me condescendingly when I asked to be removed from their list. Whatever you're trying to do, 'FindTheRightJob' ~ you suck at it.
I registered with this website to find a job and all I got was two to three harassing phone calls every day! Most are from Florida wanting me to sign up with schools even though I said on the site that I didn't want to go back to school. This website is a total scam!
I didn't have trouble with this site. The opposite actually. I found all the job listings helpful. And their blog is good.
My phone started ringing from the no-name educational facilities before I even left the website! I clicked "NO" when asked if I wanted to receive information about furthering my education. I guess that doesn't matter. I've gotten about 20 calls in 24 hours. The Findtherightjob site disguises other websites for these "colleges" as part of the profile you are supposed to fill out to search for jobs. This really should be illegal. I'm going to BBB.com.....
I had just logged off the site when I got my first call from NoName College, half an hour later a call from NoName Institute, several others since then from various "educational institutions." I did learn one thing tho - going by the heavily accented English, "Sean" is apparently an East Indian name. Who knew?
I had posted a job offering on craigslist and the post has been flagged but i received an email the representative. this is exactly copy and pasted :

Lots of luck, your a dumbass, and your failing before you even start . The issue is not with Craigslist, if you had a link that was correct it would take you to a web page you dope, you have wasted peoples time as you do not have a clue as to how to operate something as simple as placing an ad on Craigslist........enjoy flipping burgers Ha
There you have it. I have no need to take this from anyone and i do not think that a person like this should represent anyone.
Thank you all for your time.
I received a phone call from this number and I did in fact go onto the site findtherightjob in search for work. However I realized there was an option to further your education and I did NOT opt out. This is why I received calls, and this is why many of you have been receiving calls. I redid the entire process and opted out of receiving calls about furthering my education and I never received a phone call!!!! This site does work because I did received a job offer for a position I applied to and the company hired me!
Bunch of a-holes harassing me with phone calls for no reason.
I searched for a website with local listing of jobs and FindTheRightJob.com came up as one of the first Google results. Never again will I assume that being a top Google result means it's a good site to go to. I had just filled out all my personal information it asked for when I decided to look up the review, and boy am I glad I did! Looks like I avoided a lot of annoying calls and emails. Thanks guys!
