I was originally told that the principal for this organization would help me open doors to finding a new job. I was emailed several forms to complete and then I was asked to complete my new resume. Very litte feedback was given other than the typical "change a word here...change a word there".
After several weeks of inactivity, I asked the owner what I was doing wrong and asked why we were not talking. She informed me that she typically had weekly metings with her clients. I asked why we were not having these meetings and she said that she just hadn't scheduled them. We did arrange to meet on Wednesday evenings. After the first few calls, I was asked to change the meeting time because she was too tired at the ened of the day to talk with me. I gladly changed the meeting times.
Over the past 7 months, I have had to initiate almost all calls with this organization and each time I am asked what I had done to "network". I recently asked wat my options are and I waas told the following "My contract is for coaching. I have given you good advise and continue to do so. I do not have a refund policy. I have put in a lot of calls and e mails So I kept a record. If you find the opportunities I can give you relly good advise and how to get the job."
This is not what I signed up for, but technically she is correct. This is what the contract states. My recommendiation is to only use this organization if you need "coaching". Do not expect this organization to help you open doors that are typically closed. You have to do all the work and they are supposed to help you close the deal.
