The Bait-and-Switch Job Offer


Kate*, a copywriter and marketing professional, moved to Chicago three years ago with a promising job lined up. She was hired as a marketing manager at a small consulting firm, and was excited to expand her skills in a role where she was promised she'd be able to "wear a lot of hats."

Yet when Kate arrived on the job, it was nothing like she'd expected -- and she eventually realized she'd been the victim of a bait-and-switch job offer.
