I hope everyone had a great labor day! I made sure to wear some white jeans since it is officially the last day you can wear them…although I like to break the rule now and then.
Upon my return from a camping trip I got back to the job search and noticed that a few jobs I had applied to months ago had popped up again. At one company the same job has been re posted about three times now. The difference? Each time, the responsibilities get dumbed down, and in some cases so does the title. What gives? As I apply and re-apply I’m still waiting to find out what it is that may put me out of the running. In a way it’s encouraging to see that we are not the only ones who have to dumb down our resumes and credentials. However, I wonder why companies are doing this. Are there not enough applicable candidates? Are the candidates they are seeing over/under qualified? Have they promoted someone else from within?
Does anyone have an answer for this phenomenon?
What did you do today?
