Marveling at our world of connectivity: instant access to everyone by Linked-In, Facebook, Twitter. Still, the number one frustration of individuals seeking new employment remains the inability to get through, to connect. The appearance of connection is not the fact of connection. That requires response. And response comes from people.
A paradox of contemporary life is the appearance of connectivity. How is it we don’t “get through”? Because no one is reading. Perhaps our key words are incorrect?
What frustrates is the naive belief that if posted, the posting will be read. Silly entitlement. Yet, for those individuals who keep trying to get noticed, especially when its about supporting themselves and their families, the fiction of connectivity is another painful modern reality.
Not getting through: it becomes a therapeutic issue when the attempts have been numerous and the silences deafening. Somehow, it is impossible for individuals to concede that with all these apparently fruitful possibilities, something is not happening for them. The problem is our credulity: how can the difficulty not be “me”, we ask. Hard to believe simply: it’s not. Why do we disbelieve? Because, in believing that the problem is not in me, we have to relent and admit our injured sense of entitlement— we want to believe that we can connect. It is easier to believe that the problem can be solved by rewriting the resume again.
Much tougher to believe that no one is reading our revision.
