I just quit my job in August as a Program Manager. I am looking for environmental science positions in Los Angeles. I have a bachelors in geology and in the mean time i've been working for an outdoor education company in hopes of finding my dream job soon. Now that i've left my job in August I have applied to over 100 positions and I have recieved 1 call back and 1 interview that never called me back.
I am so frustrated. I am at the point where I feel worthless and disappointed and just trying to make ends meet. I am a hard worker with over 5 years of experience in program and project management.
I had a colleague tell me that my name is complicated and therefore turns off recruiters. They suggested i "Amercanize" my name and I feel absolutely sick about it. I dont want to believe that this is true but I'd rather make my resume spectacular than change my name.
If anyone that can look at my resume and see what i've done wrong or help me in any way i would gladly appreciate it.
