These folks must be writing their own "positive reviews". I had the misfortune of wasting 3 hours of my time listening to Mason's ridiculous sales pitch and then propose I retain their firm at the tune of $7,800. Let me just say that it is ILLEGAL to charge a candidate for a job placement in most states. This place is a total scam.

The recent recession has affected many people. After nearly 30 years in business, mostly in middle and senior management positions, I was laid off from a very well paying job. I was concerned about being older and over qualified. I needed real advice and I found it at Chessmen Career Movers.

Chosing Chessmen was not an easy decision. I was naturally skeptical of job placement firms and "headhunters". But I found that Chessmen was different...they listened to my concerns and then immediately prepared for me a well organized and thorough plan of attack based on a substantial personal profile. Essentially, they provided a job hunting "boot camp" that was sometimes exhausting , but designed to keep you focused and motivated to find the best job out there.

After a lot of hard work, and by followibg their advice, I am now gainfully (and very happily) employed. Special kudos go out to Richard who is a genius at his profession. He is an extremely skilled resume writer and coach who truly became my mentor and friend after dozens of in-depth meetings.

The price of admission to Chessmen is well worth it, especially to those who seek more than just a job. If you are a serious professional looking for career advice, I can't recommend these guys enough!

I did not use Chessman Career Movers.

Here's why:

- They ask for money up front as opposed to working on commission. This seems odd to me having worked with and knowing other professional recruiters.

- I believe they are out of sync with technology as this hurt my confidence in them. Their website, http://www.chessmen.biz/, doesn't sit on its own domain name. Go there, click on any of the links to the left, and notice it changes to something like http://02c7d8e.netsolhost.com/mission.htm. That is not professional in my opinion.
- And as a second point to this the recruiter that contacted me used an earthlink.net email account as opposed to @chessmen.biz. What is that about?

Anyhow, they may provide great services, I don't know, and never will for the above mentioned reasons.

They don't inform you about their charge when they contact you. When you ask them, how much it costs, then they disclose that they charge you $6200 for setting up a meeting with you and guiding you how to do your job search. I would recommend to stay away from them. There a plenty of FREE recruiters out there who do an excellent job and get paid by the employer when successful. No need for the poor job hunters to pay.

My background is VP-level finance and my previous company downsized me. I thought that was the best job I'd ever had and I'd never do better. Was I ever wrong! I've increased my salary by almost $25K with my new company, with better hours and a better bonus package. All thanks to Mason and Richard at Chessmen. Thanks guys!

Had been looking for a job for sometime and finally realized I needed help. I found their system of a comprehensive job search to be effective. Had several interviews and landed a good job. Chessmen systematized my job search, and got me going in the right direction. Highly recommended for both quality and integrity.

I thought retiring from the Navy was going to be tough but Chessman made it smooth and easy. Got a great management position and make loads more than working for Uncle Sam.
