I've used this in my company for 5 months and it has really run smooth. It saves time and has been a great automated solution for IT


I really like pbs kids site for my kids. They learn a lot and my youngest does great with it. Its not just boring stuff but actually helps them learn


I wasn't exactly happy to use this site but I got an illness in 2015 and had to quit a very successful technical career. My health issue was very difficult but I finally was done with my treatment in late 2018. I tried to get a similar job but I couldn't even get a call back. I had 15 years experience with highly sought after skills. I just couldn't believe I was getting nothing in this economy. I started to think I needed to go back to school or take a far less paying job but an HR friend told me it was because of my 4 year gap. She said it would be very hard for a company that doesn't know you to take a chance on someone with such a big gap in work history. Resumes are picked by automated programs and they overlook resumes with large work gaps. This really upset me since it wasn't my fault I got sick and now that I fought to get well my illness was still effecting my life. One day I googled "fake job reference" and careerexcuse came up. I saw a few others but this one seemed the best and was in lots of main stream articles. I didn't want to lie on my resume but I have a family and my wife has been the sole bread winner for 4 years on top of taking care of me. I wanted my teen kids to know their dad used to be successful before his illness. I decided to use them just to see if it made a difference. I created a very similar job as I had done in the past and was very qualified to do. I didn't create a job that I had no experience in. I was blown away. I had calls the same day. I literally had 15 voice mails after I muted my phone during a movie. I interviewed and it went great but now the worry really set in. I knew now the company would contact careerexcuse so I hoped they would come through. I had sent them a ton of emails to make sure they were dependable. There is no room for errors. If they messed up not only would I lose my new job but I'd be very embarrassed. I tested their phone numbers they had created and wrote a very detailed script for them to follow. I figured what I was doing wasn't really wrong because I still need to pass the interview and do the job well. The only thing that was preventing me from getting that chance was an illness. The companies didn't know I was sick and i wasn't going to plaster it all over my resume. I figured this was the only way to give me a fair chance. They wouldn't be in the interview answering the questions for me. I'd need to have the skills to pass and my interview was extremely technical but I was floored when I got the call that everything went well and I got the job! I actually got emotional. My wife and kids were so happy. I have been working a month now and I am very satisfied with career excuse. I'm writing such a long review because when i started I wanted to hear from real users how their experience was. I recommend you explain to your rep exactly what you need. Write details on what you need them to say. Do not create a new job that you have no experience in since you need the basic skills the job demands. Ask them a lot of questions. It was worth every penny and I hope I never have to use them again but if I had another big issue where I couldn't work for a while I would use them in a heartbeat. I have been very successful in my new role because I knew I was very qualified for it but I had to get my foot in the door. I knew there was no other way and I proved it since the responses I got went from almost zero to well over 200 by the time I was finished. I kept my account active with career excuse just in case. Its a tiny price to pay just in case. It was probably the best money I've ever spent. I spent $195 to get a very well paying job that I am certain I wouldn't have even had the chance for otherwise. Call me a cheater, call me a liar. I don't care. I know I'm a good person. In life we sometimes have to do things we would rather not but I literally had no other choice. If you have a gap longer then a couple months in work experience I don't know any other way unless you want to wait a long time since they will take less qualified canidates over you just because work gaps are regarded as a huge negative for recruiters and HR. It is safe and effective. I wish you the best in finding the job you deserve. Thank you

Tip for consumers:
Ask them questions to feel confident.
Do not create a job that you are not qualified for.
Write up a script if you need them to say anything technical or specific. Work with them to create a good plan. It works
