Quick Summary of My Home Job Connection
Rating: 1 A scam hidden behind the facade of a job site
The Good: It does actually link out to a real jobs site.
The Bad: It lies to you from the start by pushing systems that are not jobs. Plus, half of the site doesn't even do anything.
The Bottom Line: If you want to find work, head to a well known site rather than this scam wrapped up in a pretty site design. If you're looking to start your own online business, then you should check out my number 1 recommendation.
My Home Job Connection Review
When I ask people about the types of scams they see online, the most common answers involve badly written, incredibly hyped up sales pages that that just look dodgy.
Something that most people don’t tend to see is a professional looking website that, at least on the surface, appears to be a genuine and legitimate business aiming to help you make money online.
My Home Job Connection is just that sort of system, and I want to explain to you why you should avoid.
My Home Job Connection
The idea behind My Home Job Connection is that it is a site that can help you find part or full time work online by connecting you with businesses: it is attempting to be a job placement site.
At first glance the site looks the part: it has a quality design, pretty logo and all the trappings of a regular and genuine business.
The first thing I noticed was how many likes the site has on Facebook: 455,232 which is quite impressive.
That is until you realize that the Facebook like buttons and the number are fake!
Further down we’re treated to a common sight on make money online scams, a video from a news report discussing work from home opportunities in general. It has nothing to do with the site and that plus the news network logos plastered next to it are just there to add a sense of legitimacy.
The FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section is there to help you overcome any objections you might have, such as whether you need experience. It’s quite clever in what its achieving psychologically.
Then there are big brand logos, who apparently need your help and are willing to offer jobs. I have no doubt that these large companies are looking for employees but I do doubt they are doing it via My Home Job Connection.
Finally, and tellingly, there is a disclaimer at the bottom advising you that they are not endorsed by these companies (fair enough) but also that a “typical user of our website does not make money using this system”.
That’s an odd turn of phrase for a recruitment site, but perfectly in place with a make money online scam!
Finding a job
Searching for your zip code in the prominent search area, leads you to a form that supposedly tries to narrow down your choices:
- Choose your desired weekly income? [sic]
- How many hours can your work per week?
- When can you start working?
- Do you have basic typing skills?
These questions really do nothing except to help make you feel like there is an actual process here. You can answer anything and still end up at the next page, which is a signup form.
Here you add in your details (including your phone number) on the pretense that you’re registering to the site. The reality is that you’re not and you’re simply handing over your contact details to savvy but unethical marketers.
If you’re not aware an upsell is often shown after you buy something in order to try to sell you something else. In the marketing world these are often called One Time Offers, OTO for short.
Imagine my surprise then when I noticed the URL for this page (and the next one) is OTO. The page is stating that you can make up to $100 almost immediately by signing up to certain companies listed below.
It’s also very clear on telling you that you must click the link in the emails you’re sent. Why? Well, the links are something called a CPA or Click Per Action and the people behind My Home Job Connection make money when you complete the action and usually it’s very good money.
Will you make $100 just from signing up with these companies? Probably not as these are survey companies and they usually don’t pay that well, unless you manage to fit their needed demographics. As long as you click the link and input your personal information, the marketers who created this page don’t really care whether you make money or not.
The second upsell is outlining a way to make money online, and clicking the video as they request you to actually takes you to another website for the Home Earning System. This is most likely owned by the people behind My Home Job Connection but either way it looks like yet another scammy site.
The Members Area
Finally we get to the so called members area.
Here you’re again pushed different make money online systems and also shown the CPA offers from before.
The main purpose of the site, in theory, is to find you a job, so of course you click the big green button to take you to the job board only to find that it’s broken due to a typo in the link.
Luckily there’s also a link in the sidebar.
Once there you will see a fancy looking filter system that does nothing but reload the page, and a list of jobs.
These jobs are real! This surprised me a lot, until I realized that the jobs are from a different and legitimate site called ZipRecruiter, who also happen to have an affiliate program.
I tried other areas of the site including the Make Money and Paid Surveys sections, but all the links there just reload the current page.
Even the sign in page (referred to as the Logout link just to confuse you) only redirects you back to the main page.
Apart from the advertisements, nothing on this site is real.
The Bottom Line
If you’re looking for a site to help you find real work from home opportunities then avoid My Home Job Connection, as it is nothing but a scam.
The site lures you in on the premise of finding you a job only to try to get you to sign up to survey sites and to buy dodgy looking make money online systems.
Its only saving grace, if you can call it that, is that it does actually link out to a real job website.
If I were you, I’d look elsewhere to find work.
