In my post last week named after Salvador Dali’s surrealistic masterpiece, “PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY,” I ended the story, “I dusted off my resume and …”
… sent it off to the HR departments at all of my favorite potential employers! With, as previously noted, many misgivings. But I had to do it. It was time.
Not long after, some initial feedback trickled back to me and it was a little unsettling.
Turns out that I was no longer what you would consider to be a new graduate. Technically speaking, this meant that I was trying to make a prospective “career change.” In the job market, that’s a no-no and often a no-go. You see, if you’re skilled in one thing, you are automatically presumed to be no good for anything else. The job market is very simple-minded that way.
Look, I don’t write the rules. Just a silly blog. I’m merely reporting here. You decide.
