Is your Career Blocked ?
You've had a successful college career and now hold your Associate's, Bachelor's, Master's, or Doctorate degree, but you are unemployed or underemployed because you cannot seem to obtain employment in your profession.
Or perhaps you have years of experience in your field and you have tailored your resume to perfectly match the job requirements But when you apply for a position, you get no response. Or, if you do get an interview, it ‘stalls’ as soon as you sit down for an interview. Or maybe, the interview seems to have gone well, but the employer never calls you or provides any feedback. And if you call to check the status of the interview, the response is that they filled it internally, or they found a candidate who was a better fit for their corporate culture.
I have been unemployed before and I have had to take jobs well below my education or experience level. Over the years, I have applied for hundreds of jobs and seldom had any interest in my resume; in spite of presenting a resume that was a perfect fit for the job description, complete with years of relevant experience, multiple degrees, and several professional certifications.
Here, you can find the answers to your questions, "Why?" and "What do I do next?"
This is an easy read, but it is packed with information about employment bias and ways to deal with it. Ms. Justice’s book answered many of my questions and helped me understand many mistakes I was making.
I strongly recommend this book to job-seekers, recruiters, hiring managers, and HR Professionals; or anyone who is working in a position that is well below their experience and education levels.
