How To Spot Bad Career Advice: 4 Telltale Signs via Forbes

By In Blog On September 4, 2014

I didn’t know this when I was writing my book (I should have guessed) but there are a lot of people out there offering career advice without the experience to back it up.

The four “clues” to bad advice cited by Jenny Foss in her article “How To Spot Bad Career Advice: 4 Telltale Signs” for The Muse via Forbes will help you weed out material that is not useful but you still need a strategy. Real job search guidance means real “action items” and a real, defined process. For that you need guidance from someone who has spent time in the trenches. This is what I do, day in and day out as a contingency headhunter. Read the Forbes article and if you’re serious about your job search, get my book and empower yourself with a real strategy.


Kurt Schmidt is the author of “Modern Job Search” and the President and Owner of Capto Systems, an executive search firm focused on supply chain and strategic sourcing jobs in manufacturing and energy. He’s also an aspiring photographer and traveler.  If you’re really looking for a job, you need this book!
