I don’t mean to always talk about resumes and jobs but I had dinner with my parents last night and realized something about whiners.
I cannot even believe how many people have said “there are just no jobs available” or “it’s a really rough economy now.”
Seriously, how many of your friends have said that to you? Still counting?
Anyways, then I tried to convince my dad that people who have skills will get jobs and hardly ever say those lines. Yea, there are debates about outsourcing, commoditization of skills and the decrease in education. Basically all more excuses by sub-par people.
Am I saying I am a great hire? Who knows, I would like to think so. All I am saying is that you need to develop your skills and aim for the best and there are millions of jobs out there. Why aren’t you getting hired?
