This company gets you to sign a contract for up to $4000 to help you get a job, interviews and all sorts of business contacts you 'couldn't get on your own.' In reality you get a cheesy three ring binder, a 1/2 day 'seminar' and lunch. Beyond that all you get is lip service...no interviews, no jobs, no contacts. They offer to mail resume's on my behalf.

In reality in 18 months they have done nothing. They have stolen my money for the service they have performed is worth less than the paper they used to make the empty promises. BEWARE THE BAIT AND SWITCH...THEY PROMISE THE SKY AND GET YOU TO SIGN A CONTRACT THAT GIVES YOU NOTHING.

Do not do business with Carole Tipton, aka Phillips Carlyle International, aka Carlyle and Associates. This is a sham organization designed to suck the money out of the most hopeless of victims, the unemployed and underemployed.

Carole Tipton started at Bernard Haldane

AUTHOR: Theresa - (U.S.A.)

It is important that Carole Tipton's history be recorded so as folks are searching to research her company/companies, they are realizing her path from start to finish in the "career development" industry.

A. Carole Tipton used to work for BERNARD HALDANE & ASSOCIATES (go ahead and search the web looking for BERNARD HALDANE to see what sort of operation BH runs...)

B. IN 1998, Carole Tipton left BH to start her own company, possibly part of a franchise (single company, local branches like McDonald's) called PHILLIPS-CARLYLE INTERNATIONAL.
Carole Tipton/PCI was sued by BH because she trucked out of BH with all their marketing tools. The infamous 3" binder filled with the Day-Long Marketing Seminar information, the "blue sky" job questions, the "self assessment" survey, the "85% of jobs are not published" hook, etc. SHE LOST THIS LAWSUIT! Apparently, she just took the "tools" and techniques BH used to sucker their clients and opened her own company. BH took exception to this, sued Carole Tipton/PCI and won.

C.In 2002, Carole changed the name of her company to CARLYLE AND ASSOCIATES. She did NOT however, change her tactics.
D. In 2003, the name CAREER CONNECT INC, now appears on her communications to clients.

It is clear that Carole Tipton is not sincerely in the business of helping others develop skills in order to secure their "dream" or "blue sky" job. Just like Bernard Haldane, she is apparently in the business of recruiting clients and at best, providing them with a mediocre resume, an overstated "Career Marketing Seminar" day.

My hope is now that she has opened under CAREER CONNECT, that she never gets money from any clients because sites like this one exist and her pedigree is now clearly visible.

This information will be added to all Carole Tipton Ripoff Reports so everyone researching her companies will see it no matter what report they view.
