Thank you , we appreciate you and your service for making sure we had no transportation issues!
One of the many things does well is to ask the questions that really made me think about what I thought were obstacles to my goals. I wanted someone to challenge my ideas/thoughts and did exactly that. She is very easy to talk with and that helped keep the conversations real. Another really valuable part of working with is her sharing relevant stories in her life about how she handled certain personal/business situations. What i saw was a woman who doesn't let anything stop her. If she has a goal and idea, she finds a way to get it done, and I have tried to incorporate that thinking into my life. For me the whole process was a real learning experience. Each week something new was uncovered, and she will challenge you to rethink your sticking points. In my case I really sort of knew the direction I wanted to go to, but was sort of stuck unable to move forward because of obstacles I put in my head. However, after working with I have the confidence to move forward and to move the obstacles to the side.
I had worked with another career/business coach in 2011 and went through the process with a lot of excitement. However, in the end I really didn't make any changes that I knew I needed to make. I let the obstacles really stop me from starting. Working with really gave me the confidence to say to myself "Yeah, I can do that, and there's always a way".
I look forward to the day I can work with her again.
a. Didn't know a single engineering firm in the area (a place where she lives and has lived for decades working as a career consultant
b. She claimed that many of her clients were engineers but she had to pull out a ...MoreRead more of this review 3 year old magazine of a listing of local
engineering firms to even get a single clue about what companies existed. This list was not comprehensive by the way and not helpful.
2) She would patronize and talk down to me
a. I have email evidence of her patronism
b. She would constantly smirk and laugh when I brought serious concerns to her attention.
3) She charged me an exorbitant amount of money for her career consulting services
a. Unemployed people paying $3600 is not right or fair.
b. You can get ALL of the information that you would get from a career consultant online for ABSOLUTELY FREE -OR- in a nifty guide from Amazon for a much cheaper amount (I feel terrible for not doing this.)
c. You can take a course at a local university in career planning or management
i. Perfect for networking with others
ii. Costs a lot less than a career consultant
iii. You’ll have a reputable instructor to be in constant talks with during the semester and possibly long afterwards, for free!
4) She would always forget what was agreed to and asked of her
a. Shifted blame to the client for her mistakes
b. Was completely disingenuous and clueless whenever ANY responsibility was in her court
5) Had negative referrals and feedback from other individuals
a. One of her clients told me that he had been searching for a job for a year under her consultancy.
b. I came across negative reviews of Career Concepts Inc. after the fact on various online forums.
6) She never gave actual STATISTICS and numbers of the amount of clients that she successfully placed
a. Always danced around numbers by using qualifiers like, “many” and “a lot”
i. Me: How many clients do you have that are my age? Her: “I have a lot of clients your age” (No percentage or number)
ii. Me: What is your success rate among placing clients in positions? Her:“I have a very high success rate” (No percentage or number)
7) I paid her a large amount of money and she wasted my time with excuses
a. Constantly gave excuses as to why she couldn't come through on a promise (actual situation shown below)
i. Her: “Oh, I thought that you weren't interested in talking with that person! I sensed that you didn't want to speak with them.” Me: “No , I specifically stated that I would be interested in this networking opportunity. Would you please introduce me to her as you promised?”
Her: “I lost her contact information.”
8) Did she ever have a real career?
a. She majored in English in college and decided to be a career consultant, never actually working in a corporate environment where she claims to have placed many people.
i. Nothing wrong with majoring in English, but why ’t you get experience dealing with the dynamics of an office first before
giving others advice.
9) She constantly disparaged recruiters.
a. At least recruiters are doing a job that is of absolute ZERO cost to the people that contact them asking for opportunities.
10) Why would she defer to my knowledge on THIS? She should know this stuff shouldn’t she?
a. She would slyly evade an issue that she had no earthly idea about by saying things like, “I’ll defer to your expertise” or
“You teach me”. You know, things that weren’t technical at all like what jobs I would qualify for and what fields that I should go into when I gave her all of the specifics in the starting packet.
All-in-all, I would never use this individual's services ever again. I want the public to understand my experiences and to make an informed decision before working with . Hopefully, my comments above were not disparaging of her services in any way, I just want you to understand what you will more than likely get if you work with of . Be safe and don't make the same mistakes that I've made.
I can honestly say, without the assistance and tenacity of , my resume and application would have fallen into the bin of common applicants, and not the ones that stood out. Because of their assistance I received the new job, new path, and confidence I need to continue my path forward.
