Am i asking for too much?

My resume gets attention and I get notifications of it being looked at two and three times. I may have put too high of an amount for my expected salary. I put a figure that is based on my experience and years servicing in my field. I've had one interview, but it wasn't a good fit. Should I lower my standards to get in somewhere and try to build or stick to my guns because I know what I am worth?

Take that figure and cut 30% --U have to start at the near bottom every time U swap jobs!

Is…

Education should not be considered more valid than Experience

When are companies going to realize that just because you have a degree does not automatically mean success in the workplace? There are mid level managers where I currently work that do not even bother to show up a lot of the time and are most likely paid quite well. How much money are companies losing over this philosophy that education automatically equals results. Those of you in the workplace for very long have likely had similar…

I have limited education and more of an employment history how would one highlight this on a resume? Employment history first…

Im back in business

Your girl is so over the moon today. I was contacted about an opening yesterday and interviewed today. I was called 15 minutes later and offered the position. I accepted and start Monday. It's making almost as much as I made back home and I couldn't be happier or more excited. I had lust hope and felt very defeated. I actually hadn't applied for anything in quite a while because I was tired of being insulted with low salary offers and overlooked…
