Before writing this article, I have seen a lot of CareersBooster reviews, and almost all of them were terrific. I am a sceptic, so this made me dig deeper till I find something that is not so brilliant. The first place to stop was 913 N Market St #200, Wilmington, DE 19801 which appears to be the CareersBooster's headquarter. As I expected the very first Google search showed me that it was a virtual office for $99/month.
To verify this just go to opusvirtualoffices.com
and see this yourself. Why would they do that? Is Careers Booster a scam? Is Careers Booster legit? According to their reviews, they are an absolutely reliable company.
In my CareersBooster review, I have also noticed that their Guarantees tab shows nothing and basically doesn't promise anything particular to their customers. Of course, they say about some professional language and style but what about simple grammar?
I went to their LinkedIn page to see their writers but literally found three employees there!
The further we went the more interesting we found. See the full Careers Booster review below.
2.Pros and Cons
- Good quality.
- Short response time.
- Perfect reputation.
- High prices
- Hidden location
- Vague Money Back Guarantee
The online reputation of this service is quite good. It is not an easy task to find a bad review about them. Still, only a few people had issues with them. Certainly, it shows great trust for this service. You'll find many positive reviews on SiteJabber and TrustPilot about the service from grateful customers whom the site helped with employment. When I googled careers booster reddit reviews I, unfortunately, found nothing, though it would be great to see what redditors think about this service.
These guys went smart on their guarantees. Basically, they created a new tab with all those wordy promises but not a single guarantee on the home page.
To find the actual Guarantees, you have to find them on the bottom of the homepage. There should be Terms and Conditions link in the footer.
There you can finally find that those guys don't guarantee any particular refund.
What does it mean? It means that if you want to cancel the order, they can return your money back. If you got a rubbish paper you have to prove it, and they might offer you some refund, but they also might not.

If you'ew only starting out, it would be Entry, for the rest you simply choose the work specifics (Military, Federal, Professional, etc.)

Then you go to the payment page and proceed with it. Getting started will inform you about your order that has been put in progress.
7. Prices and Fees
The CareersBooster prices are quite high. Actually, they take a lot for their quality, but most of their customers are okay with it.
Based on my paper, I can say that it is good enough. Not that brilliant, but you can get a decent resume to show.
There are a lot of people who did not like it but who knows what they got there.
I was absolutely satisfied with their support agents. They are quick and efficient. I have nothing to say more, except to inform you that not all of their phone numbers are toll-free. I found that only the sales one is free of charge.
10.Offers and Extra Services
The additional services are listed in the order form on the very first step.
Those are standard. E-cover letter as a short email why you want to get this job. Thank you and Follow-Up letters are for spamming your employers. KSA is a new type of application papers that will tell your future boss about your strong sides (knowledge, skills, ability). Be aware that some hiring teams don't like these attachments as they are always too wordy and often not true. Resume Distribution to some agencies means that they send it to some other bounty-hunter companies and you will have to pay for their services.
