Personality is INTJ, career hunting, just turned 40, and moved to a new state- HELP
Thank you so much for having this community. In January, we moved to NW Arkansas and we love it!
Now to my dilemma... the job search. My experience is impressive, yet the lack of a college degree is causing a headache in my career hunt. I do have some college (3+ years combined), read lots of books, read journals, and attended tons of seminars. I love doing everything I can to move myself forward and excel in my career.
The headache comes when filling out online job search resumes and online applications. I am being weeded out of positions that I am very qualified for because I do not check the "degree" box.
My last position was in the Legal Department of a State agency. Our department focused on $5000 to multi-million dollar contracts and negotiations. My boss trained me to his level. He turned me loose to lead high level meetings, teach agency workshops, draft contracts, negotiate vendor contracts, etc. Before I left, I was teaching Attorneys how to do my job.
How do I get my resume in front of potential employers and get paid what I am worth?
