    Career analysis/ guidance/ counselling/ general advice?

    Hey PSB I'm reassessing where I'm heading, I've been hunting for an "agent" or "advisor" but striking a blank (found one possibility but prohibitively expensive)

    Most search results return hits like "100s of jobs in your area", (google is becoming an advertising medium rather than a useful search engine)

    I'm really looking for an expert who can "interview" me, pick my strengths and perhaps suggest some roles I'm not aware of, as well as helping to polish my CV and interview skills. ( having always been offered jobs I wasn't actively seeking has it's downsides, in 40 years I think I've only had a couple of interviews!)

    Obviously willing to pay a reasonable fee for professional service, rather than someone who thinks a bit of fancy font work on a resume is going to help... (yeah I've wasted money on that before)

    Anyone in this field? Or can recommend anyone?

    Thanks!

    Give Dani a call at The Resources Hub, she is brilliant at exactly that and has all the contacts for more if she can't help you in your specific field.

    Disclaimer - yes she is a friend but I wouldn't recommend her if she wasn't as good as she is.
    Knowledge without mileage equals bullshit.

    Tim,

    I am on week three of a four week course (One day per week) on this subject through the Willagee Comunity Centre with a client.

    It has taught me the importance of a modern resume as many larger companies rely on word recognition programs. A flippin human doesn't get to look at them!

    I was in the same boat as you as all my life I was head hunted. Then in last two years had to go through interviews. Now in a differnt career and loving it.

    Advice is a growing business...

    .....for a few thousand dollars, high-profile felons like Shkreli and Weiner can hire a “prison consultant” to help smooth the transition to life behind bars.

    For non-violent criminals like Weiner and Shkreli, prison “is a totally different environment than they’ve ever been, it’s crazy in there,” said Michael Frantz, director of Jail Time Consulting, who served 36 months in a federal facility for tax evasion.

    Tim,
    If you haven’t been bent, moulded, coerced, brainwashed or conceded to what society has enforced on you as you position in life by now.
    All I can suggest is ANARCHY DUDE, TOTAL ANARCHY!
