I didn't put that much focus into one job, I just applied and moved on to the next

Follow up is an essential component of an effective job search ... Surprised a "career counselor" does not realize this.

I wonder what the actual success rates of your clients in finding work. From the stuff you post, you seem to advocate utilizing yesteryear's job search methods in a rapidly evolving job market. You would do your clients more justice if you updated yourself on job seeking methods for the 21st Century.

I am just shocked and amazed that TV Sports dude is a counselor of any sort much less a career counselor. Wow, I would have never guessed that in a million years. He's so personable and full of advice
