MCKENZIE SCOTT WARNS JOB SEEKERS ABOUT RIPOFFS IN THE CAREER FIELD
DENVER, CO - May 13, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Carl Peterson, Senior Vice
President for McKenzie Scott, warns job seekers they need to know the type of
firm they are working with, and exactly what services they will provide. "Too
many job hunters think they are working with firms that will use an existing
network of contacts, that they will write the resumes for them, and distribute
their credentials, when all they really do is provide coaching and mentoring,"
Peterson pointed out.
"There are many fine firms, and this warning does not apply to them," he added.
"The agreements and promotional materials of the legitimate firms make clear
their limits to people seeking to change jobs or careers. The problem comes when
firms that supply only coaching and perhaps a few lists, lead people to believe
that they actually do much more.
"McKenzie Scott has invested millions in technology to give its clients access
to advertised openings, and information that will help them access openings that
are not published. We write resumes and distribute them to recruiters and
employers. We have a team available to assist anyone changing jobs, for months
is necessary in using all the information we make available.
"The point is, we are very specific about what we provide. If other firms were
as accurate and disclosed precisely what they do and don't provide, as we do,
there would be no problem. Most firms are legitimate, but there will always be a
few who mislead people. Job seekers should demand to see a precise, detailed
agreement before they make a decision."
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.
