I have gotten a lot of comments from managers about my resume. EconGuy in Cornelius, North Carolina. Despite what most people say looks and communications do matter.. EconGuy in Cornelius, North Carolina said: I would say being related to someone or being their friend trumps the looks thing.
Even heard one admit they grew up with one of the top bosses. You never know how someone is connected, but the favoritism is always there. Yeah my scenario was next in line to that. Criminals getting jobs in public service companies with no-offender policies etc.. I actually know a guy right now with no work history and a long criminal record who gets job offers at least once a week without even applying..
I have been amazed at what liberties employees with connections take. Or how they are treated or given special privileges. And that works that way too, if a woman is very competent. Ruby Slippers in Las Vegas, Nevada. I hired my own mother once so never underestimate the power of "Who you know". Whenever there is a limited supply, there will be a "black market" for those goods. It works both ways. People socially awkward for any reason are also marginalized even if the role requires no sales or support.
The exception being exceptionally talented people in highly technical roles. Usually those types can go into technical support, or sales. Al Einstein was noted to be different, and imagine him getting a job nowadays. I see it as the work opportunities are less than half the population needing work and people are going to hire the most skilled socially compatible person. Unless the person is exceptionally talented. Stuff is so complex these days you can no longer market and sale primitive products, and things take years to develop, so just doing the entrepreneur route can only be considered as long-term strategy unless you have an investor and sub out work.
I know what you mean about employers wanting to hire the best looking or most perky, most bubbly. I am outgoing by nature, but I have a lot of times when I am not into fawning over others or smiling so much my face would hurt!

These resume writers provide unlimited free edits on your resume and cover letter until you get the job: Chiffy in Calgary, Alberta. I absolutely would recommend using a professional resume writing service.
I graduated almost a year ago from university and had a really difficult time finding something in my field. I had great grades but limited experience. A friend of mine told me about clearlycreativeresumes.
I was on my way to two interviews within a month because the resume they wrote for me stood out. They wrote me a better resume than the one I had before, and also helped me write cover letters when I applied for each job. I think the key thing you have to do is to check and see if the company has any feedback or if they are willing to share samples with you so you know what you are getting into.
But I think in case like this, it can only help you to get the help from an outsider a professional. You could be missing so many things that someone else can essentially spot. So, I would highly recommend these guys at Clearly Creative Resumes clearlycreativeresumes. I had mine written for me, cost me bucks. I finally had someone who works for the State Unemployment Department look over my resume They asked If I wrote it, I told them "no" I paid for it Now, the question is, did I kill all my chances of getting hired with the amount of resumes I submitted.
If you really must have it written "professionally" I would ask to see other resumes like yours as an example of the work and the companies that hired those specific people. I would also ask for some sort of "warranty" on the claims of hiring and referrals.
If you really want to know if your resume is good, ask people out in public to read it over and ask if they would hire you based on the information I have found a cup of coffee works well as a bribe for this question.
