A star for you, all good points. I especially appreciate your giving credit to the spoken word. It is imperative in interviews to become a person the
supervisor wants to be friends with in my opinion. You must do pretty well at the bar too, I assume.
The reason I like that inclusion is because that's my main way of being hired. I have NEVER interviewed for a job I didn't get, and that is out of
the 10 jobs I have worked (I move... ALOT). Yes I am tooting my own horn, but it shows your theory is correct.
My problem is getting the interview...
As far as my specialty, I do sound work, which honestly is extremely hard to get into even with a good economy. I am not currently looking for a job
because I my mind is fanciful enough to believe that my musicianship will make me a millionaire in the next few years. If it takes that time span of
being poor to eventually being rich, I will make the investment.
Haha, so I guess in the end the rules don't apply so much to me, but you better believe I'd have been working hard for any company who would have
gotten at me on monster and asked to interview, but to my surprise no one did.
I have a good resume, you can check it out if ya'd like! I just think it shows the job market is failing when a good candidate never gets a call.
Again, good post.
