Q. It says there is no expense to me yet I am told I can pay for a lesson or pay for a professional opinion on my blog comments?
Of course you do! If you wanted to become a train driver and you applied for the job BEFORE you were able to drive a train and you expected the experienced train drivers to give you lessons in how to do it you would expect to pay them for their expertise and time. If you had subscribed to a writing course and you sent them an essay asking them for their professxional opinion they would charge you to write back with their thoughts on it.
Just as our clients who write to us for advice and guidance pay for our time anyone who needs guidance in how to do this job ought to pay for that time - because they are paying for a professional's expertise. We would much prefer that the people who come to our site hoping to be chosen for the job are already capable of it, it would make our life much easier and save us a lot of time.
You would not work for us free so why should our existing staff work for us for free? You are simply doing a job interview in your spare time. It has not cost you a penny. Giving a client or a potential staff member free advice/time is the same as giving them money because it costs us money to do this. If you are going to work as a professional advisor you have to learn that time is money whether it is another professional's time or your own. We also have the cost of the website to cover.
Q. I have been posting on the forums and blogs and have still not heard if I am suitable? I want to know why not and wish to know why I have not been informed that I was not chosen?
Now please get realistic here. You can apply as often as you wish. Some people apply many times and then because they have improved or put some more time into it we offer them a job later. We look for the best and contact them. If you wish to get into asking us 1 2 1 questions then that is a consultation and you arrange that on the consultation page.
