Gone are the days when it was easy to get a job. Gone are the days when you write a simple resume, go in for an interview dressed in a nice suit and are hired based on your qualifications and work history.
Now it is a song and dance. Your resume has to have something to catch their eye because they only look at it for 2.2 nanoseconds. Then you have to include the all important cover letter.
Then you have to follow up three times.
After you get the granted interview, then comes deciding what to wear.
And at the interview, you must mirror their body language and voice inflection. Laugh at their stupid jokes and ask certain questions and remember key phrases that all hiring managers want to hear.
ITS ALL A BUNCH OF BUNK!!! Why can't things go back to the simple times.
