Job Seeking: Aim Higher Than Where You Are

job interviewToday I am getting motivated to do the job search, all over again.  My current job does not stretch me to levels where I think I belong and my company is not hiring in the positions I want.

It’s hard to take the time to respond to job ads.  Do you know how many times I’ve had to re-write my resume for job applications I have submitted?  Reviewing the literature tells me to use higher descriptions of what I do.  Instead of writing; “I use software such as (Excel, HC360, WORD… etc.)” that is a tired, mundane way of expressing something that everybody has vs. distinguishing my description software I use this way; “I am skilled in using and applying many business software applications”.  Who would have thought?

In my travels with God it seems that he is pointing me in the right direction.  Don’t settle for less than my job capabilities and go for what I want.  Aim high, and get prepared for a job that is higher than the position I have.  I can only fail when I stop trying.
