Some Random Female Waving On The Beach, a blogger from the South Bay area of LA County, tells a story of depression and deception at a recent Los Angeles job fair.

Do you want to sell yuppie tupperware?  Then this is for you.  Would you like to explore opportunities selling crap jewelry, beauty products, credit card swiper systems - being paid only when you get a client?  Then this is for you.   Are you interested in sweating to line up clients and recruits in a multi-level marketing finance scheme for a company that has incurred fines from the National Association of Security Dealers for fraud and misconduct?  Then this is for you.  Make sure you have a firm handshake, bright smile, dress appropriately, and have your résumé in order!!!

Almost everything there was a ripoff, a ruse, a scam.  It was cruel to taunt people.  World Financial Group was a particularly vicious example.  With even precursory research, it is revealed to be a hardcore MLM scam (see here, herehere, and here).  People are lured with visions of Series 6 and 7 training and tales of 30-yr-old branch supervisors making 200k per month. 

If this is what job fairs are like, I’ll leave my solitary black Hart Schaffner & Marx suit safely hanging in my closet and see where my writing takes me.
