How To Avoid Executive Recruiting Scams

Executives who don’t want to do a job search but need to are most susceptible to executive recruiting scams.

And if you are desperate to work, these scumbags can really put the screws to you at your worst moment.

It makes me sick.

So I want to tell you:

—what legit recruiters will NEVER ask you to do

—how to protect yourself

—and to NEVER ask a recruiter to do this for you…

Knowing these points will help you avoid getting scammed.

Also, I mentioned in the video to follow @Mark Anthony Dyson and @Nick Corcordilos, who write extensively about scams and expose charlatans.

Lastly, I give you a couple of tactics to use to sift out the scammers.

It’s a jungle out there 🌴🌳🌴🌳🌴

Avoid These 3 Critical Errors on Your Executive Resume

Imagine you had a massive client you were looking to land…

Or a huge RFP you were aiming to sign…

Or a sizable source of funding you want to capture…

Would you submit to a portal and wait to find out if you won the client, RFP, or funding?

Or would you be calling your network, setting up meetings, and conversing with people all along the decision-chain…

I don’t think most of you would WAIT for action to happen to you.

Yet…when it comes to executive job searching, that’s exactly what many execs do…

They wait for the job posting to appear to submit with hundreds or thousands of applicants…or they wait for executive recruiters to call.

Only you know if this resonates with you…

If it does, chances are, you might be doing one or more of the other three resume mistakes I mention in this video.

4 Causes Why Resume Matching Software May Not Work For You

If you have been running your resume through resume matching software and it’s not working for you…it may not be you.

It could be one of the 4 causes I outline in my next video as to why it won’t work for you…for the job you are targeting or at all.

And to be super clear, this is not a resume matching software bashing video. These tools can be really helpful in the right scenarios.

But like all tools, no tool works in every scenario. Same with resume tracking software tools.
So, if you have been running your resume through these platforms with no results, I bet you might have at least one of the problems I mentioned in the video.

But no fear…hiring through job postings only accounts for about 20-25% of hires. So, if applying to jobs via postings isn’t yielding interviews, you have other options—many other options.

If you register for my upcoming live training session, I will show you how to write resumes for humans, software, and everything in between.

I will also show you how to do a successful and exciting job search in today’s tricky job market.

3 Beliefs Sabotaging Your Executive Job Search

3 Beliefs Sabotaging Your Executive Job Search

How someone conducts their job search can tell an employer a lot about a candidate.

Here is an example…

Do you say, “You do things differently,” but then do the most common job search activities that the job-seeking masses do in droves?

How can you say you approach business situations differently than others when you do the job search—essentially a business situation—just like every other job seeker?

What you say and what you do must be in alignment.

Did that last statement sting?

Well then, you will want to watch this video…

I share three job search sabotaging beliefs I see in senior-level job seekers who are struggling all the damn time.

Note: none of this is meant to be accusatory.

I share each observation in the video with love.

Because unless you, the job seeker…my intended audience…are aware of the energy you put out into the world, it’s hard to change that energy to get what you want.
What do you think?
And if you find you want the economy of do-it-yourself job seeking plus access to world-class coaching (us!) who understand hiring and have a track record helping job seekers land, go to
