Consider the Source
Our advice on taking advice: caveat emptor
➔ When you’re searching for a new job, advice likely will come to you from all directions. Friends and family, in person and online – everywhere imaginable. Even from sources such as Nifty50s – and we scour the online universe to bring you the best and most sound advice we can.
In spite of all that, perhaps the best advice we can give you is to be careful. We’ll be the first to admit that no one is perfect. But we can assure that the information we present here is as good as our efforts can deliver.
You’re being bombarded
Our advice is directed across the board. We strive to assist job seekers who are looking at large corporations, small businesses, non-profit organizations, etc. We hope to find something for everyone (over the age of 50). We are confident that the information we present is good, solid and helpful – from trusted sources with reliable credentials.
We can’t say that for everyone however.
Many individuals who offer guidance – no matter how well intentioned – are naturally biased. That’s something that you can’t get around. They may be right on the money, completely off track, or there may be a kernel of useful help buried in there somewhere. It’s your job, your responsibility to ferret that out.
If something sounds like it doesn’t make sense, there’s probably good reason for that. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. There is always the old adage, “if it sounds like a duck, if it walks like a duck… it’s probably a duck.”
And that’s not quackery. No pun intended.
