“Painfully out of touch and perpetuates the toxic corporate mindset and it’s broken systems. For example, during a segment about incorrect dates on resumes / big gaps between jobs, Wendy (the host) talks about her “Prison Rule” which means that if it’s not on your resume, it means you were in prison. WHAT?! It’s not funny, just ignorant and demeaning.
I’ve been following Career Tools since finishing college nearly 10 yrs ago, I even bought one of their products. I did find value in their content back then but revisiting them now in the post-pandemic and post-hustle culture era, I can not listen to them.
As someone who has hired and managed, it’s not that all the advice is wrong, it’s that the delivery is so off putting and holier than thou. They also drone on and on, repeating basic points. In that segment it felt more like they were making fun of candidates that made mistakes rather than focusing on how to help and uplift candidates.
I get some things about corporate America will not change overnight and broken hiring systems aren’t a simple fix. But this arrogance and attitude is disgusting. There are much more positive, modern, and motivating people to learn from and gain the tools you need to grow in your career.”
