“What the wife selects on her console will be paid for by the husband”
A special thanks to all Women in Technology - like IBM’s new CEO Virginia Rometty, a prime example of a professional who has earned it!
Technology has come a long way since 1969. Attitudes towards women have advanced as well. Yet the way people find and hire for jobs is still the same as it was at the end of the Second World War – using a resume, essentially a personal brochure.
Quote from a local hiring manager –
“There are 50,000 people in this metropolitan area that have your same certifications and experience. Why should I hire you?”
Resume not Required is not suggesting that you hide from your past but we do challenge you to choose wisely where you will take your functional experience. Try giving someone a reason other than the job posting you were alerted about on Career Builder. The true innovators of the world never not stop thinking after the last bullet point on their resume, and you can be sure they aren’t sitting around hoping someone takes notice of their personal brochure ~
Thanks again to the women who are brave enough to challenge the perception of the value they bring to the table.
