So you want to be a writer, but you need a job too, right? Having difficulty? Well, it's no wonder people are having a hard time locating a job. Have you read any of the job descriptions lately?
Must be able to work in a fast-paced environment. Must be able to handle extreme unrelenting pressure. Must handle extreme incessant interruptions while multitasking with ease. Must have excellent written, verbal, non-verbal, multi-verbal, multilingual, analytical, and organizational skills. Must be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.
If you are feeling as if you must perform in a Superman or Superwoman fashion, you are not alone. Businesses today expect job applicants to present themselves as gods and goddesses – nothing less than perfection.
Years ago a prospective employee could walk into the personnel office anywhere, apply for a job, and get offered a job the same day. These days getting a job is a process, sometimes requiring as many as three different interviews and numerous tests. And if you walk into these jobs with masters degrees or doctorates? Forget it – you have moved beyond perfection into the Twilight Zone. Now you're "over-qualified."
Will anybody ever hire you?
