Have I been out of work too long to be desirable to an employer? Does the non-profit work I’ve done since being laid off count for anything? Is this all a black mark on a resume?
I find myself overqualified for many of the jobs out there. I find that my work experience has a limited scope as far as experience is concerned. I feel lost. I end up applying to things I’m not qualified for and things I’m more than qualified for in the hopes that someone sees something in me. I’m beginning to lose confidence in myself and my abilities. This is dangerous.
I want them to want me as much as I want to be employed.
