Don't you love the job that are suppose to be entry-level positions that ask for 3-to-5 years exp in a related field? Like seriously, why would I be looking for an entry-level position if I already had 3-to-5 level of exp -.- .
Thats the thing. I already have 3 years work experience, in which I worked my way up to management before moving. Now I have that, I own an international business, and I have an associates degree from a top tier community college....none of which is enough apparently for flipping burgers at mcdonalds.
My friend has a bachelors in psych(which is arguably a pointless degree unless u continue it to doctorate) and shes got 6-7 years of experience in sales and two other jobs and she cant get a stupid entry level job now either.
Cant make the case that either of us are being looked at as overqualified either because over the course of the last year or so I've applied to all these places 3-5 times each time with different methodology every time. Most recently I've only put my most recent job and left out that I was a manager, and didnt even put anything about my company or my temp jobs or anything. Doesnt work just as much so as otherwise.
The only way to get a job where I am in this economy is to:
A) Be friends with a hiring manager for a booming business
B) Have a vagina
