Urging Caution Before Buying That Online CS Course - Wanda

Posted: May 8th, 2018 - 10:20 am

Please think really hard before you sign up for that Career Step MTE course. If it sounds too good to be true it's because it probably is. You will not make as much money as an MT as they claim you will. When graduates tell others this news on the forum (even politely) they delete their posts and put them under moderation, why(?), because the honest truth about what MT work and pay is like is a violation of terms. They do not want new students to hear the truth and possibly leave. This is a very dirty tactic.

An MT friend told me that in 2008 (when she graduated), when the career really changed for the worse, that when new graduates spoke out they were banned from the CS forum, and they are still doing it. They are like a for profit college; they do not care if you pass or can find work that makes decent money, they just want their money.  

Do not get me wrong, the course will teach you exactly what you need to know to do MT work, but new students are lured into the course thinking "that's good money to be making from home" and are completely misled.

You will not make $30K/yr like they will tell you; you may just make 1/3 of that if you work full time doing VR editing and you are very good. Good luck finding more than 4 cents per line or straight typing. You will make way less if you are doing this part time. You will be literally working for pennies. 

If you decide to join anyway, then please do not say once you have graduated and realized how very low the pay is that no one told you. Speak to many MTs beforehand and find out how companies treat their employees (and ICs) and what real pay to expect. Also, never pay for extensions, because it will take that much longer to make your course money back which is slow enough as it is.
