New Resident Seeking Employment in Reno, Nevada
I recently relocated from Monterey, CA to Reno, NV and am in search of employment. Over the years I have acquired many skills, some of which are specialized. My time spent gathering, refining, creating and manipulating data for visual and analytical purposes provided skills and experience applicable to any discipline. I am able to effectively communicate with people of various backgrounds and work well within deadlines. I have an acute attention to detail and think creatively. More important than my confidence applying my skills, is my confidence building and expanding upon them. My passion, work ethic, and experience make my employment a mutual investment which I am eager to partake in.
Are you aging out of your job title?
I have been asked by some of you whether it is more difficult nailing down a job after turning 50, and my answer to you is generally "yes". That said, we can make it easier on ourselves by being open to utilizing our years of experience and the skills we have developed in a wider and more broad spectrum. Experience can be a plus, but stagnation is a drawback. Be open to using your talents in various ways within the scope of various possible industries. "Break out of your box".
Thought for the day....
Sometimes skill sets are like those hidden picture puzzles., For instance you view your work experience as the big picture but there are hidden treasures that you don't automatically see. Think outside the box, often we have skills that we don't recognize as skills such as, with this economy you may find that you have a talent for managing a budget, parents are often great mediators, and those that are caregivers have the patience of Job. What skills do you have that you are overlooking? Make a list of the things you do daily and those things love to do (chances are you excel at it) what skills are used? Ask others to help by listing the qualities they see. Think how those qualities can be used in an employment environment and list them as part of your skill set.
