TERMS & CONDITIONS
All federal, local, state, and independent agencies are equal opportunity employers and base their hiring decisions on a competitive hiring process utilizing an examination process. CareerStarters.org provides job listings, free hiring guides, exam-specific explanations, and support and placement assistance to job candidates who are looking for a career within federal, state, and local civil service agencies.
CareerStarters.org is not affiliated with any civil authority, a state agency, or government entity. We do not guarantee the employment of any candidate, or the availability of any specific job, in any area, at any given time.
Material fees are required to utilize all the training materials and support provided by Career Starters. This transaction will appear on a bank statement as “Job Support or SkillXChanges.” Any billing questions or concerns should be through our customer service phone number listed below.
TRAINING MATERIALS ARE NOT REQUIRED TO APPLY TO ANY OF OUR JOB LISTINGS, ACCESS HIRING GUIDES, OR SPEAK WITH A REPRESENTATIVE. ALL CHARGES ON THIS SITE ARE NOT AFFILIATED WITH ANY CIVIL SERVICE AGENCY CHARGES ASSOCIATED WITH APPLYING. CAREER STARTERS IS AN INDEPENDENT SERVICE PROVIDER AND HAS NOT BEEN ENDORSED OR APPROVED BY ANY LOCAL, STATE, OR FEDERAL AGENCY. ALL MATERIALS OFFERED ARE TREATED AS A SUPPLEMENT TO APPLICANTS WHO NEED ASSISTANCE.
Cancellations and Refunds
Contact Customer Service for Refunds (706) 204-3438 and choose the billing option.
The Career Starters program offers a “Pass the Exam” guarantee. Therefore, the initial registration fee is refundable if the candidate provides proof of NOT PASSING the required hiring exam, which is given at an independent testing facility (Failure to show for the exam at the testing facility does NOT qualify for a refund). Refunds are also available to those who request them within 72 hours of their registration date, provided our program resources have not yet been accessed or used. Customers will need to contact the toll-free customer support number within your account or by submitting a request through our Contact Us Form.
Customers eligible for a refund due to not passing the official agency exam must submit a completed Refund Request Form, along with a copy of their exam score from the civil service authority and a copy of the charge as it appears on their bankcard statement. Customers also must have taken at least two exam simulations and obtained a passing score within your Career Starters account.
Other mitigating circumstances would qualify for a partial refund. Customers who have completed all the required steps within the program and find that there have been no available jobs within 50 miles of their residence after 120 days of registering for the service can qualify for a partial refund and maintain full access to their Career Starters account.
Approved refunds are processed within two business days. To request a refund, just log in to your account and click “Refund Request” in the bottom navigation bar. Applicants are not eligible for a refund after 120 days of registering.
In addition to helping candidates in the hiring process, CareerStarters.org also rewards successful candidates for getting hired. All candidates who register through this site and are hired by the civil service authority, are eligible for a $25 Rebate with proof of completion.
Our customer service agents are available Monday – Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time. Please log into your account and contact them directly for any assistance needed regarding your account.
We encourage customers who are not eligible for a full refund to contact support to discuss the matter. If in any case a dispute is filed with a credit card company, Career Starters will immediately suspend the account, and all access records will be passed on the processing bank. The customer accounts in dispute will remain suspended for fraudulent activity even if the dispute is considered invalid.
