Applying For Jobs

By: Rebecca McInroy

We might think that as long as we have great test scores, the right degree, or certain awards, that we are a shoe-in for that job we just applied for. But the truth is you could have all of that and more and still not get the job. That’s because so many of the factors that are taken into consideration when employers or administrators are sifting through applications, has very little to do with actual qualifications.

In this edition of Two Guys on Your Head, Dr. Art Markman and Dr. Bob Duke, talk about what matters, and what doesn’t, when it comes to your application. Yes, they give some tips on how to “get the job” but the most important thing to remember, whether you get it or not, is that a lot is just out of your hands.
