With 83% of people citing their career as the most important driver of financial security and mental wellbeing, the size of the recruitment and careers industry is unsurprising.

Unfortunately, this attracts some bad apples, and the recruitment and careers sector has its fair share of service issues, bad practices and downright scams. This inevitably affects contractors.

Knowing how to identify and avoid these booby traps can save contractors an awful lot of time, aggravation and even money.

In our brand new webinar, we’ll be exposing some of these hidden dangers including:

  • Why some recruiters advertise ‘non-mandated’ contract roles to harvest candidates
  • How to interrogate recruiters so you are not mis-sold a role
  • How some recruiters are advertising fake vacancies to sell non-recruitment services
  • How scammers are taking money from unsuspecting contractors
  • Avoiding being used as a marketing tool causing serious detriment to your reputation
  • How to work out which CV appraisal services are a scam
  • Why many ATS optimisation scanners are fundamentally flawed
  • The truth about ATS and why much of what you are told is nonsense
  • How to keep your personal data safe whilst applying for contracts

…and much more

This is a 50-minute webinar with Q&A at the end for you to ask questions. You can also submit your questions in advance when registering for the event.
