Seems a little too good to be true.

They have 2 jobs listed on CareerBuilder in my area.

Re: Paid internship?
I have not dealt with them directly, but have also recently seen their
job postings. I did some googling of their name and found enough info
to stay away. Here's one thread on Tech Republic. When I started
reading what people had to say, I thought for a minute I typed in
Amway.LOL

Sorry if I offended any Amway people. :)


Re: Paid internship?
Yeah, I Googled their name paired with "scam," and it's a scam.  Darn.
Basically they charge you a ton of up-front fees, and there's no job.

Re: Paid internship?
Actually, Tech Pros Group/www.lanwanprofessional.com currently has 75
job listings on CareerBuilder.com

While this particular outfit does appear to be a scam, this concept is not
too good to be true.

Check out the Cisco ANCE program.  Very cool entry level training program.
Some serious hard core training and then you get placed in the field.  You
have to commit to going where ever they place you for 2 years.  But, if you
are young and starting out, it is an awesome start to a career.

Wow, that does look great for someone with no family.

Oh, by the way, I "got accepted" by Tech Pros Group.
