Money and employment are connected. Is the connection so entangled that you forget who is paying whom? In this posting, we're gonna hear from Nick Corcodilos who shares about the traps and trends in for-hire employment services. Examples that I have come across in my own experience are sites like 4entertainmentjobs.com and ivyexec.com. Both of these sites require a membership or payment to get access to exclusive job listings. Have I gotten access to something special and different than the non-paying job search folks ~ meh? On the other hand, paying LinkedIn $55+ a month seems worth it 'cause I get direct access to hiring managers.
The big advice from our northern neighbor Nicky C.?
“Never, ever pay anyone a dime to find you a job.”
