IT’S OVER, IT’S GONE, IT’S COMING

NEXT WEEK, TOMORROW . . . WHAT?

You want keywords, there ya got it. Why do you think they don’t have windows that open on Wall Street skyscrapers? Sales down, projections flat, staff let go. [Don’t you love that, “let go,” as if you are pleading with them, “Please, please, let me go, ruin my plans, fracture my hopes and disrupt my life! Oh please!”]

Anyone who thinks that your typical word-word-word resume with its usual “works well with people” and “highly motivated” has a chance in Hell of having an impact on a screener in today’s market — much less the worse one of tomorrow — is living on mescaline or Disney movies.

Now is the time for all young men (and women) to call for the aid of a bioblog.

If ever (EVER!) there was a time to stand out above and separate from the crowd, it surely is now. If anyone is going to get hired, it is surely going to be the best ones; the others will just have to make do.

Which one are you?
