I explained what the joke was about before I began telling it, partly to get approval to continue and not lose my chances of getting hired. I saw that they were interested so i told the joke and luckily they were humorous enough and started chuckling. While i did not get the job, it was because of over qualification. In fact they told me they liked how I acted quickly on my feet. The whole point, I was told, was to see my response under an unusual pressure and potentially uncomfortable situation.
So how does your resume measure up? Could someone guess your age just by looking at it? If you’re a mature worker, this is something you need to consider. Sure, no one is supposed to be discriminated against in the workplace on the basis of age, but hiring managers are human beings, and prone to making unconscious decisions based on the perceived age of a resume submitter. What can you do?
Although job search engines are quite powerful, there is no guarantee if they will work for you or not. In other words, there is no way of knowing how long it will take you to secure a job in NYC. That’s the reason why many people believe that finding a job is actually a job in itself. Nevertheless, you can simplify this whole process with the help of a popular job search engine.
There are no page limits to a resume. There may have been at one time limits to the length of resume. This was because the resume was on paper and had to be read by the hiring manager. If the resume is in a soft document, like a word-processed document the hiring manager is more likely to use the features of the word processor to scan the document to make a decision. That decision will be based upon the keywords and the descriptions surrounding the keywords in the resumes. Keywords are the key!
Many companies are now using behavioral questions like “please describe a time where you experienced conflict and how you handled it.” These kinds of questions enable them to know how a person would behave in pressure situations. Past actions are generally a good indication of future actions, particularly in jobs.
Republicans had majorities in both Houses of Congress that allowed them to do, pretty much, whatever they wanted, and they did so over the objections of Demorcats across the board! Now we have another Democratic Administration with majorities in both houses. The last time this happened was the 8 years that Bill Clinton used to clean up the messes made by the previous 2 Republican Administrations. The “Clean-Up” operations are getting more and more “Industrial Strength” as time passes and the Democratic Party has now become the Republican’s janitor again.
When the jobs hiring in my area dried up about seven years ago I turned to the internet to see what job opportunities there were online. And im pretty glad I did. I discovered that there were market research companies out there just itching to pay me big money for my humble opinion on various products and services.
With so many foreclosed homes on the market, this business is gaining in popularity. Mortgage companies aren’t in the business of selling houses and don’t want to be landlords. They want these properties cleaned up and sold as quickly as possible. This is a home-based business that isn’t going away anytime soon.
