Job Search Firms: Big Pitches at Big Fees, but Few Jobs

"“Career management” or “career marketing” companies like ITS, which charge large up-front fees, are easy to stumble upon on employment Web sites. Often, as in Mr. Fischman’s case, they contact job seekers after they post their résumés. They usually focus on professionals and managers, massaging their egos by boasting that they accept only the most marketable candidates. Some companies place advertisements that appear to be job postings but instead are lures for sales pitches."

Be careful everyone when it comes to job agencies that lure you with amazing jobs if they ask you for an upfront "search" fee.
