Avoiding Career Management Scams | Job Search Radio

EP 272 Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter offers a few warning signs to help you avoid career management scams.

Summary

There are firms out there who are very happy to separate you from your money. There are also firms who do very good work; I'm not going to provide testimonials here. After all, some people tell me they had successes and other people have not. I happen to do coaching, as well. Some people had terrific success with me. I'm sure others would say, "He's okay."

At the end of the day, there are signals that you can look for to know that there are firms that you should avoid like the plague.

For example, if there is a firm that guarantees your results (they guarantee that you get a job),... I'm going to do this life. Jeff Foxworthy would… If there is a career management firm that guarantees that they will find you a job, this is probably a scam.

If they have to have a check right now, this is probably a scam.

If they only have one way of doing things, one package, one price,, one set of service offerings, this is probably a scam.

At the end of the day, you will probably need coaching because you probably been so involved with your work that you haven't really paid attention to how to find work. It's good to have someone who can prod you and push you and encourage you and kick you if you need a kick in the derrière.

Whether you use me (you can find out more about me at www.TheBigGameHunter.us) or you use someone else, I thought I would just give you a couple of warning signs about things to avoid.

At the end of the day, more than anything, get the advice that you need. See if there is a policy where they will refund if you're not happy after a week or so.

See if you can relate to the person that you will be speaking with. Do they seem like the kid in the office who seems like they had been doing this for about an hour or are they a veteran professional?

No matter what, find someone that you're comfortable speaking with who can understand your particular needs and avoid the ones that like I joked about earlier.

Career Planning for Your Next Big Move

For most people, the idea of following their passion is an exercise in futility. If you are young, you may not know what you are passionate about because you have been so conditioned to work for grades. If you are older, any notion of passion may have been “beaten out of you” by systems where you have been rewarded to “shut up and do what you’re told, or else.”

As a result, most people I have spoken with, whether in search or in coaching are checked out in one way or the other. They want to have an impact but have little idea of how to foster change in their organizations, let alone their lives.

The other issue I see too frequently as that people accept the commoditized work they are performing and, as a result, have become “ordinary” and “easily replaceable.” Little distinguishes them from the next person with the result being when management is deciding between people to advance or promote, they might as well throw a dart at a group of pictures

What can you do to get ahead? How can you plan to get catapult your career?

Do you think employers are trying to help you? You already know you can’t trust recruiters—they tell you as much as they think you need to know to take the job they after representing so they collect their payday.

The skills needed to find a job are different yet complement the skills needed to do a job.
