As we try to broaden our search for means to make every personal necessities met, all our perceptive senses open up like a switch to illuminate our visual focus.
Multi tasking used to be a positive skill set, however, has now become a red flag to the supervisor worried about losing the job as well. Since the workplace is now as competitive as ever, the whole company becomes a jungle game of survival. One would have to be careful about who is joining the team and think about the security of his or her own tenure and be wary about inviting a potential bump-off-er.
In this case, submitting a resume should be focused on specific skill set logically custom designed to achieve the objective in landing the job. While it is common knowledge not to lie in your resume, eliminating the irrelevant is not a crime. The golden rule about a single pager “CV” is then convenient.
When one has experienced managing their own business after losing their career and finds themselves back in the job market, choosing between the evils of stating such experience in the resume and risking the opportunity to get hired in view of over-qualification or deleting the professional skill and risk the same opportunity anyway – is a “Blank” if you do, “blank” if you don’t situation. Look on tips and tools http://www.how-to-write-a-resume.org/ to help you decide on what to do.
On the same line of thought, it is insanely critical to be in a position where one would have to hide the MBA or the PhD titles, but the relevance of such -being in the paper is a make or break situation as well. On second thought, the potential ‘discovery’ – if it’s not there – may bring about an adverse effect later on.
The best thing would be for one to assess the scenario, for each and every application one presents and all personal interviews. The potential employer will find out everything about you anyway. I am sure you have heard about http://www.peoplesearch.com/
Meantime, just focus on the reading and understanding the job description well. If you think you can do the job, go and get it. A non-generic cover letter would also be highly advisable. Use it as a tool to highlight your strengths relevant to the tasks.
