Job Stuff 23

This is more or less a newsletter for job seekers like myself.  I try to find good job search strategies, bad job search strategies, pure BS and job related articles every week.  So far I’ve never run short.  Please pass this around. I’m not doing this for any reason other than the desire to help and communicate with other job seekers.  If you have any good links or stories, especially stories please comment.  If you want the story private, just put that in the comment and I will trash it and  not let it post.

Why qualified candidates don’t get hired?

Likeability?  Look not everybody can be likeable.  Frequently the most skilled are not.  This would have everybody trying to be something that they are not.

What time is wasted?

It’s more likely that recruiters will go wrong than right.

What’s it like to work for a boss that knows less than you do?

How to Answer Interview Questions – Would You Work For Someone Who Knows Less Than You?

Been there, done that.  sometimes it works when the boss understands that he know  less than you do in certain areas and more in things you don’t have experience in simply because you may not have been in that job long enough to acquire the knowledge.  Other times the boss just can’t handle the fact that he doesn’t know everything.  That doesn’t end well.

This is a good tack to take.

Hobbies build character.  They also get you into the habit of growing and exploring new things.  Which feeds back to work.

Don’t pick a job, pick a boss.

 Of course corporations don’t want the best people.
That is if the best people doesn’t mean the most compatible people.
A great blog post about what’s happening with the job situation.
This makes good sense.
The longer you work at a place, the more diverse the work you have done will be and your resume should reflect that.
You shouldn’t hire based on following the job description.
Frankly, “not in my job description” should never be in anybody’s lexicon. Unfortunately, that’s the world we have.
So what is the real unemployment number?
Pc thinking.
From twitter.
Would you bet your life on that sort of thinking?
