After reading Tania’s expose’ on the role of honesty in our job hunting, something dawned on me.
I haven’t been honest enough with potential employers about myself.
Part of my unemploymentality has involved digging deep and trying to discover my strengths; what I’m really good at. And I think this list will help potential employers focus on the really important aspects of my skills set and work ethic.
Also, resume’s are so 2008.
So here you have it. Don’t you worry, I’ve made room in my inbox for the massive response I expect from this post. Once this hits the web I’ll have people knocking my door down to hire me.
