So I have submitted approximately 400 resumes and applications so far, at least the ones I can count. Does this make me a professional? I was looking at a website, http://www.careerchange.com/resource-center/18/why-its-easier-to-get-a-job-when-you-already-have-a-job-and-why-it-isnt and it goes into a lot of detail on what to do when you are looking, and how to explain it to a prospective employer.
I am pretty sure I have everything covered, I don’t miss any steps, and I am certainly confident. I don’t believe I am out of the loop, and I have a pretty good explanation for not being employed. Unfortunately, I think the one thing that gets overlooked is in the entire equation is the problem I am having, and that is that so many people are in the same boat, that employers have a plethora of people to pick from. So standing out from the rest is critical.
I am educated, I have significant military background, I have extensive corporate background, and I interview very well. I don’t believe in luck (we make our on luck) and I come across as an excellent candidate for most of the companies I have applied for. So what is it?
I am not sure yet…
