According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics in their report released in September of 2010, the average person born in the latter years of the baby boom held 11 jobs from age 18 to age 44. More than half of those jobs were held from ages 18 to 27.
In the past two years I think I have seen more promises by more people and more companies to improve your job search, improve third-party recruiter efforts and help you find the perfect job than ever in the history of jobs going back to Job. Is it getting ridiculous? It’s been getting ridiculous.
Here is a conversation I recently had with one of my looking for a $100K job jobseekers:
John, I put my resume on Monster, Career Builder and The Ladders. I have found some good opportunities to post to and have. But I get more calls and more inquiries about more deals and ways for me to spend money than I do actual interviews with clients. What’s the deal?
This is what’s going on right now. We have a plan and just one part of the plan is having an excellent, multi-resume posting out there for you because you are not doing a confidential search. I know about all ‘the deals’ out there. If they sound to good to be true…
They probably are.
You got it.
