The next day I mailed in $35. i had done my research on the company and found serveral sites where they actually had other postings. I even found a website for them. I tried 2 weeks after contacting them but could not find any number to speak to a live representative. i have called money gram and I day after I submitted my money order to them they cash it. I am out of $35 but I just want these people to pay for what they are doing to people. Its sad that people have to resort to this in a time of need for others. What goes around comes around. They will get caught. Just be careful when you hear about this ad.

American Careers is here to help!!

AUTHOR: Yvonne Foxworth - ()

OK folks; please let me try to shed a little light on this thread.

First off, my name is Yvonne Foxworth. I'm a Career Counselor at American Careers (NYC offices). For the doubters out there, I must say sorry for any confusion or misconceptions about us, but we certainly are NOT a scam. I've been here for 6 yrs. Indeed, I'm very happy with the results I have personally obtained from the many Applicants I've assisted to gain employment at various airports/airlines across the USA. Success stories with many different types of Positions, at varying pay rates, anywhere from $14 to $22 / hour.

Regarding our Service, we simply assist Applicants obtain employment through the information that we email/mail them to get them started with the Application Process. We then follow up with phone support via our Career Counselors to assist them in every aspect of the Application Process (Application, Resume, Cover Letters, Thank You Letters, Interviewing Techniques, etc) through our Airline Career Development Guide & our Airline Hiring Update, which includes current listings of Airline Positions & descriptions which the Applicant may then apply for at various Airlines. We will attempt to obtain as many interviews for the Applicant as we possibly can. The $39 one-time fee we charge is refundable in the event we are unable to obtain employment for the Applicant.  Details are included in the paperwork the Applicant receives.  This is a vast amount of information & assistance which could potentially require many hours to perform individually. This Service will soon be available to Applicants via a new website now under
construction:

http://www.AmericanCareers.us

We have many success stories here with regard to Applicants who have taken the time & effort to read / follow the instructions listed in our Program, and have indeed obtained employment at various Airports across the USA. Obtaining employment takes time and effort. If Applicants are not willing to follow instructions or contact us for help, we can't possibly assist in those efforts. I will gladly personally assist anyone out there in their efforts to obtain employment. Please feel free to view our BBB review in MD.

Sincerely,

Yvonne Foxworth

#2 Consumer Comment

Common Sense is the Key!

AUTHOR: Madeline43 - (United States of America)

I recently got a job with the help of American Careers! I am 43 years old and found myself without a job during these tough economic times. I graduated high school and got a job right away to support my daughter. After many years of working, my company closed their doors. I had to find a job to support my family. I had no idea of how to interview, write a resume, or do any of the things that meet today's standards. I did my research and sent in my $35 dollar money order. I followed the directions that were given to me, and even got guidance from several of the people that work for American Careers. I found that they do have a lot of recordings, but I was able to reach them via the number that they sent me for any questions. I can say that I was worried about what I was getting, but realize that I wasn't scammed but helped tremendously! I couldn't have gotten a job with Delta without the help of Kevin Blackford, he walked me through the airlines that were hiring, he was a big help and often called me in the evenings. I don't know how someone can say such negative things about a company that helps. I got what I paid for, and am satisfied with the product that I received!
