Has anybody heard of/have experience with Jobspring Partners

Sextooth
Alright so I just graduated from college with a degree in IT, but have been having a hard time finding a job. I got a call today from a place called Jobspring Partners (http://www.jobspringpartners.com) asking me to come in and talk to them. Apparently they are a service that matches IT people with companies (like headhunters essentially). Now the thing is I've dealt with an agency like this once before, but after doing some research I saw that particular agency got nothing but bad reviews, so I canceled the "interview". However for Jobspring Partners I can't find any reviews, all I have to go by are the testimonials on there website. There testimonials don't state names of people or companies, just location and job title. I have no idea if they are free (doubtful) or if they charge for there services as I can't find anything on there site regarding that either. I have googled this company but can't find much info on them outside there website. They are on careerbuilder.com, but that doesn't say much. So I'm just wondering, does anyone know if this is a legit company or not or have you dealt with them before? Thanks in advance for your help; and I apologize if this is a dumb question, I just don't wanna get scammed.

    You won't have to pay them a single penny - if they ask for any form of remuneration, show them the bird and walk away.

    Any recruiting company worth its salt, derives all of its income from each successful placement with a company. Generally, since the recruiter is supposed to have done the initial weeding out and filtering of candidates for suitability, their remuneration is usually not payable for a pre-determined period of time. The longer the new recruit lasts in the position the more the recruiting company is likely to be paid. This period can be anywhere from a few weeks to six months, depending on the position being filled.

    This has two immediate effects:

    #1 the recruiter doesn't just shovel candidates into interviews regardless of job suitability.

    #2 the companies can be assured that the recruiter is a bona fide supplier, willing to stand on its own merits of selection.

    I'd never heard of them until you mentioned the name in your post, but they certainly come up like a rash in search engines, with instances of existence all across America:

    As one of the fresh supply coming into the job market you have nothing to lose and much experience to gain - so go for it.

    But if they hint at any payment required - tell them to shove it.

    I was getting multiple calls from JobSpring san jose office. They asked me to come down to their office to understand my profile and explain multiple job opportunities relevant to my experience. They told that they are working with multiple start-up in the bay area. I decided to visit their office thinking that they are very genuine recruiting agency which goes through each candidate profile and thoroughly checks profiles before submitting to their client. Meeting with their recruiting agent lasted for about 30 mins. Questions are more towards understanding my profile which generally recruiter asks over phone. Recruiter told me that their manager is out of office right now and they will get back to me with opportunities relevant to my profile. They never came back. Initially they told me that they have many opportunities relevant to my profile. I don
