Brand new van and so clean. We felt that he definitely wanted to make sure that our vacation started and ended with no worries about transportation!
We will always use
One of the many things
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
I look forward to the day I can work with her again.
a. Didn't know a single engineering firm in the
b. She claimed that many of her clients were engineers but she had to pull out a 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
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
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
I can honestly say, without the assistance and tenacity of
