Time’s Up Dilemma
The Time’s Up movement has led me to do some heavy thinking while applying for jobs.
How do I know if a potential boss, a male, is hiring me for my skills and abilities, and not just for my conventionally pretty youthful looks?
The job I’ve been offered, shall we say, is a job to grow into. I know I am capable of doing the work.
That is if I don’t get into a cycle of self-doubt that spirals out and makes me question every decision and second guess every opportunity that comes my way.
If I fail and am fired because I can’t do the job, that fact will forever be on my résumé.
Thank you for your Time's Up question.
First off, if you are let go, you do not have to declare that fact on your résumé.
When questioned, you can say that the climate of the job wasn't a good fit for you.
Make it about your goals and not about the company that let you go.
