Job Social

May 20, 2009

Went to a networking event last night, the Seattle Job Social, my first “big” event like that. There must have been 300+ people crammed into Twist. I spoke to a recruiter who reviewed my resume and determined I had a ton of extraneous “junk” in it–in her opinion, soft skills have no place on a resume. I was surprised to hear this, especially since so much has been made of “EQ” and of managing from the heart, etc. How to showcase these skills and abilities, then? Especially if they are some of my best ones?

I’m still thinking about this. I’m ready for something to shift in the universe, though…I want to go back to work!
