Who Wants a Job?

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?

Fortunately, Janet Hunt helps you through the maze of acrobatics you must perform to get a job with her ebook, Employment 101: Finding Your Way through the Job Search Maze. Click the link and you can have immediate access to the Kindle Version of this e-book. It's only 99 cents!

Good luck!

  1. Isn't this the truth!!! College degrees mean nothing nowadays. My son tried forever to get a job in his field but couldn't get hired anywhere. Now he works in retail and has already climbed the corporate ladder. They didn't hire or promote him because of his degree, only his work ethic and experience. My other daughter is looking to switch jobs, and yes, they are putting her through several interviews. I think employers can get away with anything they want now since good jobs are scarce and people are desperate to work!

  2. Thank you for commenting. It's sad, really. All these kids go to college with hopes of earning themselves a "career" only to discover they have to accept a "job" while they await opportunities to get into their chosen field. I wish your kids lots of luck. Perhaps the book I mentioned would help them.

  3. Thanks Theresa! You are the best! :-)
