The Franchise King® | Learn How To Become A Franchisee Doesn’t Seem To Know What A Job Is

no clue

You would think a company with the word “Career” included in their name would have access to the definition of a “job.” Evidently, they don’t. But, I do. Here it is:

A paid position of regular employment.

Go ahead: Google it.

I have a total understanding of the word, “job.” I kind of did before I even Googled it. But, I wanted to make sure.

Keep reading to see why.


Look What Is Doing

The people at are really pushing the envelope. I’m surprised their legal department has allowed them to do it.

It, being what follows:


employment websites


The image above is one part of the “It.”

Here’s the 2nd part:


not tax jobs

Do you see “It?”

Here’s the link to the webpage I’m referring to. Doesn’t Seem To Know What A Job Is

Do any of the 4 “job” descriptions above include the word “job?”

I’m referring to the descriptions.

The descriptions all read “Tax Business Owner Liberty Tax offices…


So, my question to you is this:

Is offering jobs or are they offering…Franchise Opportunities?



No Grey Area

I don’t see any grey.

I only see black and white here.

For example, why would a “job” listing include the following words in the description?

No Inventory

Low Overhead

Why would a would-be job-seeker care about those two things?

Why I’m Bothered By This

I’m bothered by this for two reasons.

1. Franchising is my life-well, my professional life.

I’m passionate about the industry, and I’m passionate about making it better…making the franchise model understandable. I want people from all walks of life to *know about franchising and to know how to buy one if they so choose.

*Read how to buy a franchise-a comprehensive article that’s an A-Z for anyone looking to be their own boss.

So, when I see abuse like this-and I think this is abuse, I get very aggravated.

When career websites…ones that target job-seekers, engage in less-than ethical behavior…as in stating something is a “job” when it’s clearly not- (it’s a franchise opportunity people), I feel that I have to share the information.

Which brings me to #2

2. It bothers me that potential job-seekers may see what’s being presented as well…a job.

I didn’t see anything about an upfront-investment. Did you?

I happen to know for a fact that it costs anywhere from $57,800-$71,900…upfront, to start a Liberty Tax franchise.

When was the last time you had to stroke a check for $50,000 in order to get a job?

I think the folks at are doing an injustice to the thousands of job-seekers that visit their site every day…expecting to find “jobs” being advertised. Especially the ones who have been recently downsized.

They’re seeing franchise opportunities being disguised as jobs.

What do you think?
