Blog: If it doesn't benefit where I ‘am headed then I have no interest in it

As a newly graduate from college my standards have increased as far as what duties I look for a job to possess. If it does not benefit where I ‘am headed, then I have no interest in it because I feel as though it is a step back versus the career direction I ‘am headed towards. I have noticed that the jobs I have applied for look for what you have done that can benefit them, not what you have done previously. And it is quit humbling to see my application get rejected when I know personally that I’m capable of doing what ever job I applied for, but employers do not know that because they just look at the key highlights that benefit them on your application or resume.

What do you think?

  1. quite humbling I imagine. Perhaps you should hire a professional to write your resume. I know that in the company where I work references are key and there are key words and specific formats in resumes they are looking for.
