Job Search is Rigged (VIDEO)

Job Search is Rigged (VIDEO)

Let me prove how you are being set up to be nice docile sheep.


If you are in the United States and you decide to buy a house, they make you sign a document that says you understand that there is a sellers agent and the buyers agent and that you understand that at times the realtor is going to operate in both capacities.

Why do they do that? Because the realtor has a financial interest in the transaction and that depending upon who they represent it by different frame from yours. If you are a sellers agent for a combined agent, your interest is with the seller because they are the ones paying you.

If they are the buyer's agent, they are representing you and have your interests at heart

In the recruiting there is nothing comparable explain to you or offer to you. They are always the agent of the employer; they are never your agent.

Why do I say that? Who's paying? Where do they earn their money from? As a result of that quote unexplained relationship" that exist between a recruiter and the employer, you always need to look at this person, this recruiter as, "can I trust this person to speak for me." How are they trying to manipulate me? How are they trying to change my mind, my beliefs, in order to accommodate an employer? How am I being "finessed" or manipulated into doing what the employer wants me to do at the lowest possible price?

I believe it's important for you to get unbiased representation. You can't always go to the immediate sources or resources (recruiters or employers) because they are looking out for their interests.

If you go to friends, family, wife, husband, partner, former managers, you may be getting advice from someone who knows as little as you do about job hunting. After all, my experience with former managers is that they think they know more about job hunting than they actually do. They deceive themselves because they think that because they hired someone in the past (or many people in the past) that makes them qualified to get advice about job hunting. Seeing them is job hunters as often as I do, I know how wrong they are. Most know less than nothing about job search.

Many of the people that you might seek out for advice are as uninformed as you are. You need to find someone who if you quality advice throughout your job search, who can guide you all the way through the process and represent you and your interests, who is not beholden to an employer.

I do that kind of work and I'm sure others do it as well. I to it with great content and I do with coaching where you hire me to answer your questions and concerns. I'm not be hired by an employer to place you in a job; I'm there to help you find your next position.
