Help(?) Wanted

What exactly is it that companies are looking for? What exactly is it that I am looking for?

I have worked hard for over 30 years and yet still was able to throw a monkey wrench into things that got me gone (Southern coming out in me I guess) from each job. Loyalty is a two way street, but which side of the street is more important? Do companies really reward loyalty from employees? From ALL employees? Or just the Executives? At what part does loyalty to a company get in the way of loyalty to family, friends, or to yourself? Or vice versa?

I considered myself loyal, but was I? I can justify just about anything in my mind, and it is very easy to find reasons to put blame on anyone else except for yourself. Pay was crappy, company didn’t supply employees with what they needed, employees did not put forth the effort or seem to even care about how the company performed, employees didn’t appreciate what the company DID do for them, special events, parties, outings, etc… so what was the point of planning them?

It is all about the mighty dollar, right? I hope not. Life is so much more than that. It took me losing almost everything to learn that, but I truly believe it. Remember that money is not the root of all evil….THE LOVE OF MONEY is the root of all evil. It was always important for me to have money in my pocket, no matter what. That is the LOVE OF MONEY. It got me absolutely everything….and then it lost everything for me because I couldn’t stop.

So what is next? Back to my original question, what are companies looking for? How do I convince them that I am NOT overqualified for positions that I KNOW I can do well at? To be completely honest, I do not miss working at this point, but money will be tight VERY soon so I got to do something. Any advice out there???

To be continued….


See ya!

Man in recovery from everything, looking for a little help, inspiration and direction.... Have spent the last 25 years working in big business, getting lost in all the chaos, not feeling like what I did mattered. By no means am I a professional writer nor do I even think I am that good, but it is something I love to do. Getting lost in a world of words, even for just a little while is why I started my blogs. In reality, at the age of 49 I am trying to find my voice. To find my passion. Maybe starting a little late, but better late than never. I write for me, I enjoy reading other's thoughts very much as well and look forward to the day that I can hold an extended, intelligent, meaningful conversation with YOU View all posts by joatmon14
