Misleading Advertising


Ads can be misleading because:

They don't have enough information. They are written purposely to mislead you, because the "employer" wants to hide from you what the job really is; or to make you think there's a job when there isn't.

Be wary of:

  • Ads you see all the time
  • An instant interview
  • Jobs that aren't jobs - they want you to sell products
  • Misleading job descriptions
  • Misleading income claims
  • Training disguised as a job
  • Contracting disguised as employment
  • Commission only paid for selling
