    Hi there, i came across this company today on http://www.prospects.ac.uk/ that seem to offer IT placements for graduates of varying length. They are based in newcastle but offer placements nationwide in the UK. I did a quick google search to find further info but nothing came up so i was wondering if anyone has heard of this company before? I am concerned that this may be another dishonest company like FDM training

    they can be found at http://www.xlgraduateplacement.co.uk/index.html

    thanks

    The site looks ok, and the spiel seems relatively legit. So long as they aren't asking you to pay for anything (eg training, or "the opportunity"), then there is nothing to lose really.

    CoolC what exactly do you bring to the table mate? None of your posts have any substance and it's a little odd. It's almost as if you're posting just to increase count because you never really express an opinion on anything or offer any sort of advice, so why do you actually spend your time posting and not just reading?

    Don't quote me on this, but I believe .ac.uk is a restricted domain so Joe the Scammer couldn't easily register one. Looks legit :D

    I agree you have nothing to loose. Give them a ring and if they ask for money or training then hang up.
