the worst kind of hunt…

it’s amazing how hard it is to find a job these days… making a resume that stands out from the rest, writing a captivating cover letter, and putting on a show during an interview are some of the most difficult and draining experiences… being genuine doesn’t get you very far… honesty is untraceable by employers… so i’ve always wondered, who gets the job i didn’t get?

building a résumé is the only part of the job finding process that doesn’t suck too bad… you get to reflect a bit on your past jobs and what you did at them… it’s a good feeling to see what you’ve accomplished throughout the years… but you need to know that you’ll be the biggest fan of your own résumé…

the cover letter is meant to catapult you into an interview… this is your chance to brag and boast about yourself… you make statements that set you apart from the rest of the applicants… embellishing and dramatizing experiences and abilities is recommended here…

it’s a weird feeling sitting down in an interview… you meet with a total stranger and your goal is to sell yourself to them… you talk to them about your past and experience… somehow you are supposed to explain why you are best for the job… you have to do this in a unique way to stand out… this is when it’s important to make up things that you may feel are needed to get the job… being yourself could be harmful at this point.

every job opportunity i have been hired at has been because of a friend hooking me up… in the work world, it’s not always what you know but who you know… i am fortunate that my friends would put their asses on the line to help me get a job… it’s a good feeling that some people have my back!

i’m convinced i would never be able to get a job without a friendly referral… being honest and genuine doesn’t seem to be rewarded in the job hunting realm… not my kind of realm…

peace and noLove…
