MCKENZIE SCOTT WARNS JOB SEEKERS ABOUT 'NO-DISCLOSURE CAREER FIRMS'
DENVER, CO - May 9, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Jan Pierce, Senior Vice President
for McKenzie Scott today warned job seekers to beware of "no-disclosure firms."
"The McKenzie Scott contract is full disclosure," Pierce said, "in which we
specify every service we will provide. It's available publicly on our website
and can be downloaded at any time.
"Every prospective client must read the McKenzie Scott disclosure booklet, our
Q&A that answers over 60 questions about what we do and do not provide, and they
must fill out a Client Expectation Form, telling us precisely what they expect
us to do for them, before we will accept them as a client."
Pierce voiced concern about firms that do not disclose exactly what they do, and leave open the possibility that people will assume they do a lot more. "It
takes only a few of these 'ripoff firms' to besmirch the reputation of an entire
industry," she said. Well over 90% of the firms are careful to make clear what
they do. The solid counseling firms, who provide only coaching and mentoring,
and critique a resume that the client writes, will make clear the limits of what
"It's the few firms who mislead people that can hurt job seekers and the
industry alike. If you're looking for a job and exploring professional services
to help you, make sure you get full disclosure, ask a lot of questions, and
understand precisely what their written agreement says. Don't sign anything
based on verbal promises or implications. Get it in writing!"
McKenzie Scott is the nation's leading firm in providing technology and team
resources to assist professional, managerial, and executive job seekers. Their
services are described at www.mckenziescott.com.
