I've been quite happy with the results and the responsiveness to my numerous emails and questions. Give it a shot!

I needed to make an emergency withdrawal from my 401k but they were only allowing for dire circumstances with proof. I reached out to Career Excuse and got them to provide a notice from a verifiable leasing office stating I was being evicted and it was just what I needed. I consider the price to be a little high but this is the only place I seen that can offer something like this.

Needed a reference for my partner who already had put a deposit on a property. The company was hounding her for the reference or lose deposit and property..
Contacted Amy, and within a few hrs i was provided with all the reference details and website. Few hours after that... confirmation email from agency saying thanks and references had gone well.
Amy is very calming and definitely knowledgable and understanding having been in the role for so many yrs. she listens and takes care of attention to details, and makes sure every angle is covered. Will definitely recommend to anyone who is still not sure.

I was initially pretty skeptical of what these guys could do, but after texting Amey, I was blown away by the results. A couple days ago, I only could imagine what I wanted my future career to be. Today, she showed me a flawless website and references that are rock solid. I was really impressed by what she put together in such a short amount of time. She was a pleasure to work with and I feel better about my future career than ever. 5.5!

Needed a job reference, was thinking of having friends assist, but this new idea is done way more professionally. They even have phones numbers of the area codes that you want. If you need a job reference due to issues with former employers, CareerExcuse is the perfect site to go to for a job reference.

Amey has been the best taking me through the process. In this day and age to have a business rep like Amey that responds to the text within 10 mins even on weekends is absolutely unheard of. Need a job and a patch to your resume, call Amey and she will set you up.

Amy is an expert and she'll counsel you on the best way to make use of this service. After doing this for a long time she's going to have a good idea of how you should present yourself, whether it's industry specific or just generally. I would take her advice. I really mean that; if you're smart, you'll take her advice. Getting people jobs is her job, and you can tell how good she is at it just by talking to her. She'll also explain how everything works, and you'll know exactly what to expect. She's given me the rundown on the whole operation and it's well organized. It's crazy well organized. I have a CDL and they even have a DOT Number to provide a reference for commercial driving jobs, that's INSANE! That alone should tell you how well put together this whole business is. She's done everything she's said she would do and more. Above, beyond, and in great detail.
I don't understand where the negative reviews are coming from. They sound absurd to me. This woman works well into the night. Ration this for me: She answers all of the incoming calls for potential clients and then does the job of the reference providers too. She can answer every text and email you send her the moment you send it? Come on.. Somebody has never had a busy job. What do you want her primary objective to be? Yeah, that's right, answering the phone for you reference calls. Every time this has been the case she's let me know via text pretty much right away. Imagine a girl with the phone to her ear providing a stellar reference, with another phone in her hand texting you that she's on a call and she'll get back to you asap. And there's 20 of you.. All with unique needs and stories.. That's what's happening. She's not blowing anyone off. Scam my ass. After working in the trucking industry for so long, I know what it's like to be expected to be a machine that can do inhuman $#*!. AND! I know how pissed people get when the impossible turns out to be impossible.. I can see the irrational and unfounded butthurt in these negative reviews.
Let's say you land a job that pays 50k a year plus benefits.. The Blue Collar Plan is $150. Think about the economics there. Do you understand the value here? Are you going to be reasonable and work with this girl that works so hard to provide that for you? Or are you going to get your panties in a twist when she can't answer you immediately, and go trash her on the internet like a hoe?

I had kids young and chose to be a stay at home mom for several years effectively creating a big gap in my resume, and making me unappealing for practically any kind of job. Enter Amey professional, thorough in every capacity and without her help I would absolutely not have a job worth every dime and than some....

Career Excuse helped me get a great job in 2014. Then 2 years ago, my mom was diagnosed with cancer and I took off work to be her caregiver. When she passed away 18 months later, I attempted to get another job in my industry but was unable to get any interviews because I wasn't currently working. Amey at Career Excuse set up a reference for the time period I had been a caregiver and I am starting to get interviews. It is now only a matter of time until I get the right position. Amey is very conscientious and has been wonderful to work with during this process. I would recommend Amey to anyone who needs to re-establish themselves in the work world!
Review by Wenroyo9 months ago
I had trouble to use my previous manager as a reference as she dislikes me personally. It was extremely unfair that I had to use her as a ''professional'' reference when she was ''personally'' against me. She made me lost a job opportunity. I was so desperate and I couldn't find other referees due to the previous job was my first official work experience. I eventually found a website that's called Careerexcuse. To be honest, I was suspicious at first as I thought they might just fraud my money and never provide me the service. But I was running out of options and thought I might just give it a try. All my worries did not happen. Amey, Jennifer, and William are such a great team. They provided me a local number even I am overseas. They make the most optimal and realistic reference check for you. All the companies I applied have successfully gone through their reference check. If it wasn't them I will still be sitting here without a job and winging about my hateful boss. I am so overwhelmed with the positive result... Amey and Jennifer were so supportive and I can't word how much I appreciate them. I will definitely come back to them one day I need their help. All I can say is THANK YOU.

I was panicked when unable to locate a former boss and an offer depended on it and I couldn't provide a phone number. I had little to hope but filled out the online form, explained my problem and the urgency, Almost immediately Amey Lytle texted me asking if I'd like to make the appt sooner. She worked around my work schedule, called as soon as I could talk and I explained in total panic that I couldn't locate my boss and my duties and the company were very detailed and I didn't even have a phone number to.provide to the interviewer. Amey was remarkable! While I was talking about the problem, she listened intently, asked a few questions and compiled detailed notes. She was professional, calm and so understanding.. I paid a reasonable amount and within minutes she sent me a profile she created from what I said and a phone number. I was able to send the interviewer the phone number, and Amey arranged for William Schmidt, another incredible person to call the interviewer back the next day. William called me and reviewed details, listened patiently as I kept adding more info, gave an excellent reference and called me back to let me know. I had another issue with the person listed from my current company (former coworker) not calling back so Amey gave me a discounted rate and gave a reference herself after quickly absorbing even more detailed info about my company and job duties. The interviewer had detailed questions and Amey somehow answered all of them, gave a very professional and thorough reference, and I got an offer. I cannot say enough about her service; I know she was busy but both my situations were very urgent and she respected that, was fast and very thorough in getting the details, and was in constant communication with me. She made me feel like I was important and I can't remember ever getting such amazing customer service. And as I said, she picked up all the key points I made, typed them up and remembered everything when talking to this very detailed interviewer. It is so rare to get the privilege of such competent, fast, accurate service and have someone like Amey who also showed genuine compassion and kindness for my situation. I want to give Amey Lytle the absolute highest possible recommendation! This is an amazing company and I am so grateful to Amey!! She went so above and beyond and could not have been more pleasant!

Excellent services especially from Amey Lytle. I am particularly impressed with the way their system works. I couldn't ask for better.

I found them online while searching for resume help. Amey talked me through it, found out what I needed, and helped build the resume and provide references. I haven't started applying yet, so I'll post another review once I get hired somewhere to share how that all went, but so far, I'm pretty satisfied. The only bad thing I could say is that it took longer to get everything done than I expected, but they made up for it, so it's all good. They even put up a couple of websites to make everything look even more legit. Very friendly and professional too in my experience.

I can't say enough good things about Careerex. and I was able to get a six figure job by using their service. The reference they spoke to from careerexcuse couldn't have been better! I was able to write my own email reference coming from a previous 'job' for a 2nd reference. Recieved call within a half hour of email sent with a job offer! If your job history is spotty like mine you can't ask for a better resource than careerexcuse.com!!!

I needed a landlord reference for my a new place and I thankfully came across Career Excuse online. Amey has helped with this process so much, and has made everything so clear and straight-forward. It's been an amazing experience and I can't thank her enough. Career Excuse made the impossible possible with their service and I would highly recommend them to anyone in the same situation.

Review by Newquaytony Shemechko1 year ago
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

Where do I even start! I contacted them for a job opportunity that I really wanted for awhile and had experience but didn't have the formal training on. I felt I was always overlooked because of it. I contacted them and they informed me of everything I needed to know! I personally worked with Jessica and she was amazing!!! These guys came through like no other! I was able to secure the job! I start next month! I am beyond excited! You definitely need use this service I promise you will not regret it!!!
Review by Shreekar1 year ago
With today's tough economic times and mostly indifferent HR personnel , even a few months of unemployment could mean the end of one's career in most professions. I am working in healthcare industry with extremely high competition among professionals, especially in cities. I had two significant unemployment gaps that would effectively take me out of competition for a professional healthcare job. I used careerExcuse company TWICE, and it worked very well BOTH times. This is not a coincidence but hard work of Jennifer and Willam! After I described my obstacle to employment due to unemployment gaps, they quickly customized APPROPRIATE employers to fill in those unemployment gaps. Not only that they quickly provide verbal verification of past employment, they will help you to have an employment of verification form filled out for each employer if you have more than one (if needed). Many employers verify past employment by requiring employment forms, and, therefore, this is absolutely essential. If you have unemployment gaps (generally just more than 3 months) , 99% of the time (with today's economy), you will NOT even get an interview. I just got an offer and passed employment verification successfully with one highly reputable employer that uses a very strict background check company. If I did not use CareerExcuse company, I would continue being unemployed. Remember: HR are NOT sympathetic to your situation if you have significant unemployment gaps. They do not care to find out if you are qualified to work. They strictly make their hiring decisions based on your past/current employment, and based on lack of unemployment gaps! These guys are sympathetic to your situation, and they know how to help you to get a second chance in your professional career (not just any job).

They provide a local phone number for your prospective employer to call, and will either answer the call live and set up a voicemail with the reference-provider's name.
I checked with my prospective employer and these guys returned the reference call and the employer was satisfied with the reference. It's legit and it works.
Review by Lebada Galimova1 year ago
Do not waste your money. This is a total scam. Amey and her "staff" will not answer phone calls, return emails or text messages. The references are laughable. This is really terrible because people who need this service are already in a desperate situation.

good company.I was concerned when I didn't hear back for a day. But she always replied and let me know how busy she was and the status on my project. And at the end it worked got hired for three jobs only took one. The people who got scammed I'm not sure what happened. But for the other positive reviews I can believe them because it worked for me.
Review by LaronBotkins1 year ago
I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation to CareerExcuse. The company did just as they said they would. That is, they set up a very realistic web site with my company name and provided me with all the necessary contact information (my business number and the number for my boss and another member of management that I could use for a reference). Then, when I interviewed, I easily passed the reference check the company conducted.
Beyond allowing me to successfully land a great job (most money I've ever earned and 5 miles away from my home), CareerExcuse was supportive, professional, and caring. They were prompt in answering my questions, and quickly made the slight changes I requested on my company site. And, perhaps, most of all, I felt the CareerExcuse representatives I spoke with were very concerned that they meet my needs and that I land the job I wanted.
An excellent and caring outfit, I would strongly recommend you give CareerExcuse a try.
