Commercialization Redefined

Commercialization Redefined.

This is so true and I believe applies beyond liberal arts graduates to include people like me – the preverable round peg who doesn’t fit into square opening. An accomplished intelligent 50something professional woman with a BSc, MBA, and 28 years diverse business experience and a broad range of transferable skills and competencies, having difficulty finding suitable work because I’m either overqualified or underqualified. Employers say they want quality people as employees, yet the application process, largely online, is designed to find specifically defined technical and task orientated job skills rather than strong thinking, problem solving and interpersonal skills. I have a theory that the unemployment rate in Canada could be reduced by at least a couple percentage points if all the candidates applications sitting in on-line in servers were actually screened by people instead of computer programs. I have no data to support my theory, just my own experience of posting my resume online and completing countless online job applications that I never receive a reply to other than the computer generated auto-response. Perhaps one day I’ll research this…that is when I have some spare time in between my current full time job of completing online job applications.
