The Ladders is a website that will not only help you find a job, but get a job. They offer resources for resume building, career services, and even one-on-one career planning.
The basic services at TheLadders.com are free, including articles about career services and understanding of resume and interview strategies. In addition this includes access to their available jobs database.
In this way, The Ladders is the same as most comprehensive jobs databases. They act as an aggregate, compiling all the jobs postings they find online and keeping them in one place for you to search them. However, that’s not all TheLadders.com does.
How is TheLadders Different?
Well, unlike your basic jobs database which just lists jobs for you and lets you pick and choose which to apply to, TheLadders.com claims they can get you a job.
That’s right. They offer a series of memberships to their website that range from basic packages that offer services to handpick the best possible opportunities for you based on your resume and background, to a package that guarantees you a job offer.
The Premium membership can be as low as $15 for one month to $59 for six months of service. The Premium membership gets you the same services as the basic membership as well as choosing the best opportunities for you from their 12,000+ employers and resume improvement services.
The Signature membership cost $2,495.00 for six months and includes all the services of the Premium membership along with one on one career counseling, a personalized 10 step plan, and a job offer guarantee.
While the Signature membership is expensive, The Ladders claims that if you invest in the Signature plan and do not receive a job offer, you can request a refund. Currently you must call 877-872-8858 to see if you qualify for the Signature plan.
