Why sometimes is it impossible to find a job for a good specialist?
Knowledge is a great thing but sometimes it can bring harm rather than benefits. If you are a good specialist, you must have an accurate and attractive CV if you are going to change your job. The most widespread problem among professionals, they don’t have such a CV. If it is stated that you are a financial director, it will be attractive to most bosses, as they can get the exact information of what you are. But if somebody writes that he is a genius at programming or coding, it is quite difficult to specify his or her skills. Moreover, this kind of CV will be almost impossible to find among keywords.
One of the side effects of high intelligence is the ability to do more in a limited period of time than most other people. As a result, the CV of a smart person with 10 years’ experience looks as if he worked for 20 or even 30 years. The problem, however, is the presentation of facts. When a smart person tries to describe all the details, all the experience and every corner of his life, the recruiter is drowning in this stream of information and does not notice the necessary experience for his job. In addition, a long and overloaded CV can look like a person is doing his best to get a position. It is much better to emphasize the necessary experience, skills, and achievements in a logical rather than chronological format.
Successful people often shy and bashful, isn’t it?
The majority of smart people have super-achievements: their results are much louder than their speech. However, no one denies the fact that it is important to get to an interview where you can demonstrate your achievements. This is why people of higher mental abilities may need to learn how to present their achievements, skills, and talents in a coherent manner, so their employer can get what he wants. They can’t rely on the knowledge, that you once did an amazing job for someone else. Therefore, you can hardly expect them to read about your achievements to be amazed at how much you have done.
As a result, smart people do not know how to emphasize their skills or experience, do not know how to express it. They also don’t know how to write about their achievements in such a way that the recruiter will find their CV by keywords.
How to avoid long-lasting interviews in stuffy offices?
How to behave in an interview? This question arises for every employer whose CV was approved. After all, an invitation to an interview is not a guarantee of getting the position of your dreams. It is important to produce the right impression and bring the situation to a positive result. If you want to pass an interview successfully, you need to know the interview questions and answers, the rules of behavior and the psychological techniques of recruiters. With appropriate training, you will be able to build the right dialogue and convince a potential employer of the need to hire you.
But what to do, if you have no desire to sit in a stuffy office under total control? Is there a way out? That is the question that requires much speculation. Everybody wants to be independent in many ways. The main problem of current office-workers is the lack of time. They have to go to the office early in the morning and go back home when the bell rings. Sometimes they can have the same position with the same income for many years.
Freedom is available right now
Due to the development of the Internet and media, there are a lot of new ways to find a more or less suitable job. If you want to be independent right now, it’s high time to think about what you can do. Can you sell your knowledge to anybody? Now, there are lots of companies that prefer to employ workers from different countries. They don’t need departments in every city and country. They just have a headquarter and run their business remotely. They prefer to employ people with high knowledge and good skills to pay them without visiting offices.
Nowadays there are several trends on the Internet that can be popular. You can become a copywriter or a good programmer and sit at home with a cup of coffee doing different assignments for people all over the world. It develops your skills, and you will have an opportunity to communicate with people from all over the world. It is also a good opportunity to master any foreign language.
Myths about Internet employment
BBC recently published a report about freelancing or so-called Internet employment. Some people believe that they will be lonely in the world of freelancing as this approach is very popular nowadays. First of all, if you are a good specialist it won’t take much time to find a job. If you are afraid of being lonely, it is not a problem. A lot of freelancers work in offices and unites in small or big companies to work together.
The majority believes that freelancing is derived from the word free. They think that they can work whenever they like. It is partially true, but if you want to become successful you should manage your schedule and follow it. Otherwise, you can lose every ability to earn.
Another myth deals with the period of work. It is believed that freelancers work 24 hours a day and never have a break. Of course, it is not true. The amount of work can be different, you can have much of it one week, and you can have little of it. Everything depends on you. It is up to you to decide if you are ready to work or not.
Another myth is connected with income. Some people don’t consider freelancing as a main job. They think that it will be impossible to earn good money there. But there are some examples that can prove that freelancers can earn quite enough to lead a comfortable life. Everything depends on a person. If you have a desire to work, nothing can stop you. You should rely on your skills and knowledge. It is always difficult to start, but if you see the aim, it will be achieved sooner or later.
