I'm a laid off Machinist still looking for work.

I'm just giving a little update on my job search so far. Since the last time I posted on here I've had 4 interviews. I'm just waiting for some feedback from 3 of them. One of them wanted to hire me on the spot for far less than I was making previously from my other job. I'm willing to take a little pay cut to prove my skills and work ethics. But this was literally embarrasing to me with my many skills and what I have to bring to the table. They offered me $43,000 to start, I was making $60,000 + at my last job. I ask the interviewers is there any room for negotiations. They ask me what would I suggest and I told them $52,000. One of the interviewers quickly said "we don't have some engineers and supervisors making that kind of money". I said "I have a lot to bring to the table" and everyone agreed. They told me the max the would go is $45,000. I told them let me think about it. That was 4/2/2020. I know I need to work and bring money into my household to keep the roof over my head and food on my table. But there is several thing I know I have working for me in my life is my wife of 32 yrs and the back up plans we've created over the yrs for times like this. I want to really go back to work but I'm not going to be handled like I'm desparate. I'm a patient person and I know that ideal job will present itself to me in the near future. Ok guys thanks for listening and please everyone be safe.

I will be keeping track of this. I have High-Functioning Autism (Asperger’s), though no one would think I do at all... but I’m convinced it shoots my chances at interviews by putting off bad vibes. Also it gives me a defeatist attitude about competing for anything against others, let alone jobs. I only have a liberal arts BA degree I did very well in and a lot of other credentials, but I feel like I have to totally shift to a new field in which merit will get you the job over interviewing skills. I actually do have great people skills but not under a strict hierarchical system or where you’re expected to act ‘inauthentic,’ such as in an interview.

I’m a Jack/Jill of All Trades. Is That a Good Thing?

Yes and No.

Yes, because I have no doubt that you have learned and do WAY more than what your current or former job titles and job descriptions suggest.

No, because you don’t want to market yourself that way on a resume.

During interviews, you can absolutely bring up past stories and wins to illustrate your versatility (as well as include SOME of them on your resume), however, on paper, you want the reader to very quickly and very clearly see who you are and how you align with whatever role you are applying for.

Keep in mind that you can (and should) always adjust your resume based on the role you’re interested in.

Simply highlight the most relevant points, so a hiring manager can easily connect the dots, to then increase your chances of landing an interview.
