Talent Desire Review: Legit? Not Really

If you have ever heard of the Talent Desire company, it seems like a promising option at first glance.  They note that you can work with popular brands and work online from home, all without investing a dime.

All you need to do is select an online job from home, apply for free and then wait to get hired.  If you do, you can then start working, where you can collect a payment that works best for your situation, such as PayPal.  Again, the premise sounds amazing, but I hate to break it to you that it’s more than likely not.

In today’s review, I wanted to show you how works and why it’s more than likely not a good opportunity for you.

As in all of my reviews, I’m always 100% honest, only recommending what I feel is worth your time.

How Talent Desire Works

If you land on the website, you will see that they have a variety of options on the menu, but most of the information is found in the “current openings” and “start here” tab.

If you were to click on the “start here” tab, then it will mostly tell you how you can earn online, such as exploring the career opportunities on their site as well as how you can apply for jobs online.  There’s nothing groundbreaking here and you can find this information almost anywhere on the internet or YouTube.

The same can be said about the perks, tools and tips section.  These sections are just links to content snippets that don’t offer much of value.  For instance, the perks section states the “perks” of working from home whereas the tools section lets you know what’s needed to start working from home.

Out of all the subheadings, I think most people will be drawn to the “current openings.”

If you were to click on this option, you will see a list of options, from online typing jobs to online tutoring jobs, many of which pay up to $180 per day.  The claims seem a pinch high, but the range isn’t too far out of the ordinary.

The website lists about three pages of job options, and if you were to click on one, such as the medical transcription page, it will take you to a job application-like page.

As you can read, the jobs sound almost too good to be true.  I mean, you can expect $2,250 per month as a transcriptionist at a minimum?  I’m not saying you can’t make that typing; however, if you’re just starting out, it’s going to be tough.  They make it seem as if anyone can apply and that’s their goal here.  They want your information.

What Happens if I Apply for a Job?

If you were to click on the “apply now” button on any of the jobs page, it’s going to take you to the same application where it asks you to fill out personal details, such as your name, email, phone number as well as some other basic information such as your current professional status.

After signing up on the form, it just lagged and didn’t do anything, which I figured would be the case.  Even if it were to accept my application, who knows what they would do with my “information.”

The Red Flags

#1 Lots of Ads – The whole website was littered with ads, so it’s moreso a content website, not a job portal that will actually help you find a job.  They bury the fake sign-up form so that they keep clicking on pages IN HOPES you click on an ad.  This is how they are making their money.

#2 Misleading – All of the job posts are very misleading in that you can make thousands a month, even as a rookie.  This isn’t the case.  While you can eventually make okay money, it’s not going to happen overnight.  Plus, in all of my reviews, I have never come across a company that offers so many job opportunities.

#3 Data sharing – If you were to get the sign-up form to work, they do share your information, as per the privacy policy.  It notes “data we collect may be transferred internationally throughout Talent Desire’s worldwide organization.”  In other words, have fun watching spam come in.

Final Thoughts

0/10In the end, Talent Desire offers nothing of value.  It’s just a content farm-like site that relies on you to either click on ads and/or give them your information so that they can pass it on to people who want to buy it.  There’s absolutely NOTHING in it for you.

For now, what I recommend is that you check out my website or simply Google anything you may want to learn more about.  There are a few honest people out there, but I’m finding most have some money motivating factor, unfortunately.  While I make some money with affiliates and ads, I try not to push it too much.  Don’t hate me for it.

That’s going to wrap it up.
