  •  Also Won't Hire Anyone Overqualified (8+ / 0-)

    They want someone with all these assorted skills, but only in very specific and limited amounts.  It's always Goldilocks and the Three Bears "Too hot...too cold..."

    •  Ain't that the truth! (6+ / 0-)

      I am underqualified for office jobs b/c I don't know how to create a spreadsheet...but overqualified for just about everything else b/c I know how to do paperwork (plus spell and punctuate and write, and like that).

      In a way, I'm lucky Annie hired me for my current job, and I think she hired me mostly b/c I have a good record of not job-hopping. (I hate job-hunting, that's why.)

      Damn, but I miss Annie. We haven't had a decent manager since she got fired: and I"m quite sure her firing was sexism, pure and simple. The next manager after her had the same failing, and HE didn't get fired until he blew up and spewed F-bombs at work one night.

      And people wonder why I don't want a management job: b/c they are exploited even more by corporate than we peons are.
