What do all these things have in common? The JibberJobber radio show! Today I spoke with Karen P. Katz, owner of Career Acceleration and blogger who has some terrific thoughts on the job interview, and what we can learn from Obama and McCain in the ultimate job interview.
We started talking about why Obama has the position he has, even though he doesn’t have the credentials McCain has. I’m not interested in a political discussion, so don’t go there, but think about it… doesn’t it seem that McCain has a lot of the “right things,” according to what a job description of the President of the United States (POTUS) would contain?
As job seekers, do we sometimes look at a job description and think it’s unatttainable, even though we might have done the same stuff somewhere else? Yup, you guessed it, transferrable skills. Karen talked a lot about transferrable skills on this one-hour job search radio show.
We got onto a very interesting point about age discrimination, and how to deal with age discrimination in a job search. It was cool to have the Recruiting Animal on the show, as he provided a recruiter’s point of view. What does an older job search candidate do if faced with discrimination in the interview? We talked about that at length, and some great ideas where thrown around.
That’s all I’m going to tell you – you can listen to the hour long show here
