It is pretty obvious that in today’s day and age, it is extremely difficult to find a job, much less find a great job. The old way of looking and filling out applications is simply not working any longer and if you happen to be looking for a job in this economy, you need to be prepared to do a whole lot of searching in order to find the best possible job for your specific set of skills.
Gaps: To most interviewers, gaps do not symbolize a need to take a break, re-evaluate life, and start out on another, more focused, career path. Gaps mean that you enjoyed living on unemployment or that you are hiding something. If you already have a lot of jobs on your resume, then gaps could mean you are covering up even more jobs, terminations, or flakey behavior.
Go through an vikarbyrå. Employment agencies are great for finding temporary work if you need it, but often the short term jobs they find could lead to full time employment if the company you work for likes how you work. Even if the job seems temporary, work hard and work well so that you receive good references. Even a temporary job can lead to a full time position, so do not burn bridges by being a poor worker.
Although most people prefer a stable job as an employee, it’s worth it to look into the possibility of being self-employed. That way you won’t need to find felon friendly jobs since you will be creating a job for yourself.
How do you convince the job application screener that you are not flakey, that you are committed to making this position work? How do you bury your past (not hide it) while letting your skills earn you an interview?
I have noticed several things at the various recent career fairs I have attended. First, the composition of the exhibitors has become skewed not just toward sales, but even more towards MLM. Second, the education level of attendees is rising as are average ages, as well. Third, resumes continue to suck. So I am going to camp on these subjects for a while and explore some causes and some remedies.
I haven’t figured out why they dropped their pants in front and not back (mooning), or what the dropping of the trousers was supposed to signify, but imagine if our officials did that? Imagine if the New York State congress wanted something passed quickly (other than a kidney stone), and all of them just stood in Albany pantsless? I think we’d be laughing hysterically. I AM laughing hysterically. However the dropping of one’s pants does not ensure any bill will pass and/or pass quickly. You might need to surgically remove members of one party’s lips from the arses of the other party.
