I needed a lot of work on my resume. It had been a while since I had updated it. King Career's experts took me through multiple sessions. They were helpful using varying angles to extract information even I had not thought of when looking through my past achievements. The content reflected these enhancements. Next we focused on the layout and after showing me multiple formats we agreed on one that looked perfect from my perspective. After we finished the layout, we moved on to what I felt was the most agonizing part, that was shortening the overall length of the resume. It is very difficult, for me, to eliminate my own words. However, bouncing this off of a professional makes it a little easier and gives clarification. The final product is far superior to what I originally came in with.

I also want to say that the other aspects of their services were excellent. I enjoyed the interview preparation, since those sessions tied a lot of my resume updates into it.

Overall, I now feel more refined in my job search abilities. I am deciding between two job offers and they are directly associated to King Career's assistance.

I recently relocated from the west coast to Charlotte, due to my husband's job transfer. As luck would have it King Career contacted me prior to my move. We had a few telephone conversations and I realized I needed their assistance.

I engaged their services and we began with telephone sessions on the weekends. I was employed at the time, so that was best for my schedule. My main concern was with finding an employer that suited my criteria in a job and also gave me a sense of growth. King Career's insight and progressive techniques were spot on in filtering this information. We fine tuned that ideal job criteria. Going through these sessions gave me a greater understanding of what I truly wanted in my career and as a by-product I became more aware of my past mistakes when transitioning to a new company.

Coupled with some polishing of my resume and cover letter, I began to feel better about myself as a more marketable applicant. My final piece was the extensive interview (and phone) preparation. This allowed me to easily react in any situation.

As a result of King Career's one-on-one sessions, I am now happily employed, in Charlotte, with a company that I can see myself growing with.

Thank you, King Career!

I'm actually currently employed, but we were told layoffs were pending. I wanted to be proactive to get ahead of my competition as the inevitable job search began. I thought I would need "some" assistance, but I couldn't believe all the little things that became big things as I quickly realized that I needed a great deal of help in the world of career transition. It had been six years since I had made a resume or gone on an interview. Honestly, I didn't have many contacts. I have been working diligently with King Career on all aspects of their program. This process continues to help me daily. I recommend anyone in my shoes (working but looking for change) consider using King Career to guide you. Their vast networking techniques have expanded my area of search tenfold. I feel confident that when my current company closes, I will be ready to easily move right into a new company.

King Career Consultants got me up and running!

I had taken some time off due to an illness and had decided to re-enter the job market. I was completing a project for my current employer. I felt lethargic and overwhelmed. This is when I realized that I needed a change.

I found King Career Consultants online and engaged their services after meeting the crew. I was impressed with how fluid the program was and we were able to accelerate the process with some after-hours meetings. Jerry was amazing with his insights and teachings. Based on all of King Career's information and expertise, I landed in my ideal company.

I now feel energized about my future career path.

Personalized one-on-one service!

I partnered with King Career Consultants to help guide my career path. I was unsure what direction I wanted in my career up to that point in my life. Even with a Masters degree, I had been working various jobs and never felt directed, accomplished or making the income I felt I deserved, especially for as hard as I work. I would interview and accept positions just because I though that turning one down would be rude to the employer. Utilizing the King Career Consultants five phase process was extremely helpful! Honestly it was an eye opener to learn that it was my lack of preparedness all along that was keeping me from landing a decent interview, and that in no way did I have to accept an offer if the position did not meet my needs. Now I feel prepared to not only find the right companies to interview with, but tackle any interview and win!

King Career helped to focus my activities and give me momentum in searching for my next position.

My job search was in a rut and leading nowhere, King Career rescued me.

Based on the fulfillment, excitement and salary at my new position their fee was worth multiple times what I paid for. I felt relief and satisfaction that I had teamed up with a company that truly cared about my well being and obtaining a position I could truly thrive in. We discussed multiple directions and scenarios as to targeting my search. It was good to have someone at my side to bounce my thoughts off of.

I want to thank King Career for their guidance and insight.

If you are looking for any valuable help in your search for a job, King Career Consultants is not going to be the place to bring your business. The "professional" staff is anything but professional... Father and son are dated in their approach in finding a job and will spend most of the one on one time with you (that you are paying for) telling you personal stories of their pasts.

Their approach in helping you search for a job includes cold calling, rehearsing 50 basic intervieiw questions (of which no current employer would ever ask), ranking your job preferences, and using a phone book/ newpaper to find potential jobs. LIkewise, they have terrible resume and cover letter writing skills.

When you sign up with them, you'll be under the impression that they will network on your behalf.... its going to happen. I hate that I had a bad experience with KCC, but hopefully this review will prevent you from having the same bad experience.

This group did the very minimum to aid in my search. They sent me generic leads of companies that were hiring, not specific positions that needed to be filled. There was zero filtering based on my skills, interest or work history. The majority of the positions weren't even in Charlotte. After 3 months of their "help", I could not attribute a single interview to their efforts. KCC advice was actually used as a reason to dismiss me during the interview process with one company (I have the emails to back it up!!). When I confronted Mr. King about the ineffectiveness of his firm, he simply dismissed my concerns blaming me that it was something I was doing wrong and asked me to leave his office. Do not get burned like I did!! You have been warned.

At King Career Consultants I recieved the tools, tips and assistance needed to complete my job search. The long hours of interview preparation made a big difference in my presentation skills and allowed me to become a better interviewer. Before King Career's program I had no confidence in myself. I now have the ability to overcome interview obstacles and have actually dabbled in public speaking. Thank You!

If you judge them by time spent and assume their time is worth $50 / hour I guess technically the program is worth $500. If you judge by results, I can??t even value it at $500. I have good advice?go to the bookstore and buy the book ??what color is your parachute? (job search guide) and ??how to make $1000 / minute? (teaches how to negotiate your pay). Those books will give you better training than King does and it cost you $20. Then, utilize Linked In to network yourself. Incredibly, they hardly knew what Linked In was, much less how to use it. Jerry is a nice guy but the King Career program is almost valueless in today??s world.

Before I started Jerry King promised all kinds of wonderful things. A whole lot of hoopla and grand (three grand actually) claims, and I have nothing to show for it. My suggestion? Ask for a lot of RECENT referrals. When asked for some recent referrals Jerry said - we don't allow prospects to talk to people that are currently in the program. Don??t settle for that answer. Get lots of recent referrals or walk away. There is no doubt in my mind that twenty years ago this place did great things. Unfortunately, it is now not only archaic but a lot of people are throwing hard earned money that they could be using to live on right down the King Career drain. The resume they supplied me was 1985 vintage, the training was merely common sense and the "network" was either imaginary or incredibly cold. An enormous waste of money and time.

If I could afford to do it, I would dedicate my life to making sure nobody ever paid King Career a penny. Just take this advice?if you are considering hiring King Career, insist on getting the names and phone numbers of at least 10 satisfied clients that have gone through the program IN THE LAST YEAR. I should have had my head examined?before I paid I asked for references. They gave me 3?two never returned my call and the third said he had been through like 8 years ago. I hope you read this before it??s too late. Don't make the same mistake I made.

I could not have been more impressed with the King Career group.

They analyzed my situation and recognized that aside from an 8 year period, I had been underemployed the rest of my career and it had cost me dearly. I always felt that was the case...they proved it to me.

My search to that point had been quite a drag. Many hours and lots of work, never really knowing if I was doing everything I could or should.

That changed very quickly once I found King. A new "life" had been breathed into my search and my career. The systems and network were incredibly powerful and organized.

Seven weeks later I landed a position paying 15% more than my previous job. I owed the increase in pay to the network provided and contract negotiation skills they taught.

I look forward to a well guided career under their umbrella.

Thanks guys.

Outstanding professional services.

I was 55, had owned a business and been COO for 2 others and after my business was claimed victim by the downturn in the economy in '09 I really was not sure what to do.

I went to King Career and found a home. They helped me analyze my skill sets and passions and set out with me in search of optimal employment.

I have landed a wonderful position (in part due to their network, in part to their methods) in the collectables industry that has allowed me to combine my abilities with my passion. I could not be more thrilled with my new career.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you Jerry and Kip.

What I took away from King Career will shape my employment for years to come. Their methods are truly revolutionary.

I did not recognize how underemployed I had been through the years. I do now and I now know what to do about it. In this down economy I actually found a position making 17K / year more than I was making when I got layed off.

Lifechanging experience...really. Thanks guys.

Arguably the best decision I have ever made.

In my previous position (service ops mgr) I was making 78K. My position was eliminated in April and I went unemployed for about 3 months. I went in for a consultation with King July 8.

Through analysis King recognized a more ideal fit in logistics management and through some connections that they helped me cultivate I was hired August 17th at 94K.

In this economy, I am shocked at such results. I am glad to know I have the King team at my disposal.

I hired King Career in March 2010 to assist with my job search.

In short, they did everything and anything that could be done to ensure a professional job search.

From analyzing my needs, identifying optimal employers, preparing optimal resume, cover letters, locating positions, interview training, incredible networking...the list goes on and on.

The results? Four job offers to choose from. In this job market that is amazing. I could not be more impressed and grateful.

They did outstanding work for me. I could not be more pleased. The network they have amassed is tremendous and it helped me land my logistics director position at ITR.

Having 2 masters degrees and being a rather seasoned professional, I did not think I would learn a whole lot...I was quite incorrect. Their methods are VERY detailed and effective.

Job well done. Hearty thanks.

I can??t say enough about King Career Consultants. The impact they have had on my career is immeasurable. I have used them twice for 2 different searches.

After college I had 2 relatively meaningless jobs that barely utilized my intelligence much less my degree. Frustrated, and after a friend referred me to them, I hired King. They helped me focus my search and resume and taught me how to ??market? myself. I thought I was pretty good at interviewing?I was shocked at how much their training helped.

The main thing that helped me though has been their marketing. They got my info in front of a ton of people. I landed a position at a tax consulting firm. Then, when I got my masters I re-entered the King program and they landed me at a high powered international tax firm. That has changed my life. I doubt I would be where I am today without their guidance and assistance.

From the bottom of my heart, I can't thank them enough.

Thanks to King??s help I I landed my position much quicker. According to averages, about 9 months quicker. The interview coaching and outstanding resume focus were critical. The expertise in prospecting, contact methodology, networking and interviewing have proven to be invaluableand the powerful network provided me outstanding openings. Can't thank them enough.

My primary goal is to offer fair warning to King Career??s next potential victim. King Career preys on people during what has been call the most stressful thing that can happen to a person short of a death in the family i.e. unemployment.

King Career??s method is a classic bait and switch con. As any good conman would, King Career tries to cover their ??switch? with a contract for less than what was originally presented to the ??mark?. All the better if they have marketing material tied to the contract of course the mark never sees that material. The simple fact is the presentation or ??hook? is designed to portray a much higher level service than the contract stipulates and the company is capable of delivering. Puffery is allowed when presenting one??s product, but, not to the level of actual misrepresentation.

If I hire a builder to renovate my kitchen his opinion that the contract has been fulfilled is not a shield for shoddy workmanship, ineffective methods and poor execution. I hold King Career responsible for the same level of workmanship as I would any other tradesman.

Examples of what I consider substandard work: (1) a list of recruiters that included telephone numbers that did not work and one company that had been sold three years prior. (2) I spoke to Jerry King himself about marketing to recruiters in the Greer to Anderson SC area which includes Greenville and Spartanburg SC. Jerry assured me that he would develop this list himself. I received a list of four (4) recruiters. I assure you that there are more than 4 recruiters in that area. It was at that time that I knew that King Career was a waste of time. (3) Jerry alluded to his inside tract and personal network that included the top 50 fastest growing companies in Charlotte and King Careers ability to market to same. After speaking with the Top 50 Companies there was no inside tract the material sent on my behalf from King Career was simply an unsolicited resume.

In my opinion companies like King Career are shameful con artist taking advantage of people at a very vulnerable period. No better than the Funeral Home Director that sells an overpriced coffin to a grieving widow.

Sincerely,

King Career Victim

Simply put, King Career single handedly led me to my new job. The training was especially valuable. As was the networking once they focused it on my field of choice.

The planning, preparation and training for my interviews was tremendously helpful. Frankly, I had no idea how much there was to know about interviewing. I thought I was pretty strong in that area.

I just can't stress enough how vital they were for me. I probably would have spent another 9-12 months jobless (according to statistics). They found me my job in six weeks.

I proudly recommend them to anyone involved in a job search.

Cons: Not in my experiences

I have three degrees and have spent 27 years in the financial / chem exec world. I thought I had everything one could want and knew everything necessary to land my dream CFO position.

Thank heavens I hired King Career. Wow...the interview training, network training, job objective analysis...I could go on and on.

Long story short (too late right), I would not be where I am now without their help. Recommend highly.

Pros: Landed CFO position thanks to them!!!

Cons: Absolutely None

Working with King Career was the smartest way for me to become successful in my search. You helped me learn how to learn to sell myself and it paid off. My new analyst position is only 3 months old, but it is a very rewarding experience.

Pros: interviewing skills

Cons: not applicable

.

They showed from day one that they know what they're doing and they really care. Jerry and Kip were fantastic in the training. I learned so many transferrable skills, I know every job search from here on will go so much quicker and net such good results. The nice thing is, I can use King Career as often as I like.

Honestly, if you are considering a job search or are in the midst of one, just give them a buzz. You'll see what I mean. Real professionals that care...for a change.

Pros: great training, great network, they really care

Cons: didn't experience any drawbacks

.

From the initial consultation (which was free of charge and they merely analyzed my job search...didn't even TRY to sell me anything) I knew I was dealing with real professionals and not just someone trying to sell me something.

I used them for 2 job searches actually. Both ending in relatively quick success. I think the main thing I got out of it was options. I had 10 times the amount of people to talk to. Many more phone interviews, then face to face interviews. Thanks to the good interview coaching I got offers out of the majority of interviews I attended, whereas before I was having relatively little success.

I eventually had 4 seperate offers on the table at once (a miracle in today's environment) and could choose between them rather than just taking the first thing I could get.

I can't thank them enough, and I sent them a letter of recommendation saying so.

Jerry King of King Career Consultants says when you sign up they will guarantee you a job or you can come back for life for assistance. This company is a scam and should be investigated. They can't even write a resume correctly...I had to re-write their resume after doing all of the groundwork and detail for my resume. This company does not even provide postage for your mailings to these so call good prospects. Jerry King claims he has contacts in all of the companies in Charlotte, N.C....He has none...he did not provide me one contact. They give you a standard list of Top 50 companies which I could have gotten at the local Library had I known what his program was all about before I gave him $3,500. This so called executive search program is no more than someone handing you a list of companies to call or send a resume and then, follow-up with a thank you letter. This King Career Executive search program has no value whatsoever in a search for employment. I contacted all those companies on the so called confidential list and all the employment agencies on King's list and guess what.....I got no response from anyone and no interviews. I didn't get one interview...not one. This whole program is a joke and in the future I hope this will help someone avoid the mistake I made and not give this crook $3,500. They should be locked up for impersonating an Executive Search Firm and for carrrying out a scam. If I wasn't so embarrassed about being taken by this con artist...I would go on T.V. and disclose this company to the public. They feed on people who are desperate and out of work.....The King Career Consultant program is a hoax....do not give this company $3,500 or any amount of money. It is not worth $1 must less $3,500.

Beware!!!!

Simply put, I would still be unemployed without the help of Jerry King and his staff. I left the financial industry in early '09 after 15 years. After meeting Jerry, I realized I needed his help to capitalize on a competitive marketplace. He helped me create a strategy to open up new opportunities I never considered. I started on my position on July 1.

This company has the nerve to charge $3,000 to conduct a job search for you. Give me a break! The worst part is they want the money upfront. How shady is that? How do you know they will even do any work on your behalf? For that kind of money there better be some sort of a guarantee. If they collected payment from you once you landed a job that would be one thing. Then at least you know they'll work on your behalf because they want to get paid. To ask for $3,000 upfront is crazy. I would never give away my money like that. Don't waste your time and money with a place like this.

This group did the very minimum to aid in my search. They sent me generic leads of companies that were hiring, not specific positions that needed to be filled. There was zero filtering based on my skills, interest or work history. The majority of the positions weren?t even in Charlotte. After 3 months of their "help", I could not attribute a single interview to their efforts. KCC advice was actually used as a reason to dismiss me during the interview process with one company (I have the emails to back it up!!). When I confronted Mr. King about the ineffectiveness of his firm, he simply dismissed my concerns blaming me that it was something I was doing wrong and asked me to leave his office. Do not get burned like I did!! You have been warned.
