This moron never graduated from Princeton yet his office is done up in black and orange? Somebody needs counseling and it's not the poor suckers who gave this idiot thousands of dollars.

This company tried to get me to sign up for their "service". They place ads on all the job boards of needing qualified executives making $100K+.

Executives making $100K should have seen through their ruse, just as I did.

Princeton offered nothing tangible in exchange for their service 0f "helping find executives a job".

They promised to do all sorts of tasks (ie helping with resumes, locating opportunities and connecting me. the unemployed with interviewers seeking similar candidates).

I asked them "what guarantee of employment do I get for $7000, and I was told that getting a job would be my ultimate responsibility because I had to have a successful interview, impress the company, yada, yada...".

Red Flag - When would a person ever pay for "help" with a service. Can anyone prove in court that "they were not helped"?? Use your brains guys!! I realized that the "Princeton service" only provided a commitment to nothing. That is exactly what you get when you sign up with them!! Any "valid" company would want to provide customer's a tangible and measureable service not some "help".

How could a still unemployed executive ever prove in court that "this company did not help me find a job"? Heck my dog bringing me the newspaper is "helping me find a job".

Additionally, any company that needs $100K employees with pay to find them, not vice versa. If an "executive" has to pay a search firm $6000 to become employed, it would appear to the company needing the executive, that the executive is a bit desperate and not to very employable. Does the unemployed say to the hiring company, "I paid thousands of dollars just to talk to you, aren't I the most sought after guy"?

There are several other firms that provide this same "service'

Milgroom is a scum, to steal from people who are already in trouble..what a nasty peice of crap.

Everyone should get their money back because the "contract" they make you sign is not valid.

I am 110% sure that Milgroom votes with the GOP, take from the poor and feel proud of a job well done.

Workforce One in Broward has a Professional Placement Network that is paid for by your pre-paid tax dollars. They specialize in placing executives, many in the 6 figure range. Just remember - they give you the tools , the coaching, and the means to gain employment but THEY don't get you a job - YOU GET YOURSELF A JOB!

Well, you had me till the very end. Agree that the Repubs tax wage earners punitively, but, if the Dems had their way, they'd tax the bejeezus out of everyone.

I owned an executive search firm in Atlanta for 20 years and all fees were paid by the employer - not by the candidate. I served on a state and national level in industry associations as well. To qualify as an "executive search firm" the recruiters LOOK for candidates as specified by criteria supplied by the hiring company who pays all fees. This Princeton company sounds like "outsourcing" firms that popped up in the late 80's that publically held companies used as guilt relief counseling for early retirements and downsizing of executives that were not of retirement age. These firms provided resume writing and interview counseling. Great scam on corporate America. If a so-called search firm cannot get hiring clients to pay the fees, they are not a search firm at all. I am always saddened that an unscrupulous business can smear an entire industry because they are not honest and hurt people in a time of need.

They got me good job and it costed me only 1850 dolllar. Some people get bitter when they dont get what they want. i understands well how hard it is to please everybodys dreams. thanks
Only costed you huh?

Just a guess...but don't quit that job...finding other employment might be difficult.

Anyone making six figures a year should have enough common sense not to fall for this kind of scam. And..if paying 6400 will cost you your home...why even consider it?

Fools!

I totally agree, the prices these people are charging are outrageous. I cannot believe that people are actually paying them.

I hope that the state shuts these people down and I mean fast. If at best these people appear to be a matchmaker type service for jobs and they are miserably failing even at that.
