Are You a "Job Snob?"

Written by Marilyn J. Tellez, M.A.

Continued from page 1

Communicate with your superiors as an equal. Boot polishing is out of favor. Maintain your dignity with them, and drop any defensiveness or arrogance. Be your best self.

In fact, if you have a tendency to be a job snob, help out somewhere where people have very little inrepparttar way of status or money. A little simple humility can keep you centered, more likeable, and promotable. Job snobs don't stay employed very long either. Think ABOUT THAT!

This is an important category for an information technology professional to itemize their expertise in hardware, software, operating systems, protocols, programming languages, website development, etc.


This is mandatory for many positions requiring state licensure. For example, a teacher (teaching certificate), nurse (registered nurse), hairstylist (state licensed cosmetologist). Some occupations offer certifications that demonstrate a level of proficiency, but is not state mandated to work in that capacity. This is true inrepparttar case of information technology, for example,it helps to maintain certain certifications to advance professionally and demand higher pay.


As with licenses and certifications, many occupations require a degree. Some certifications and licenses are not offered without appropriate academic training. Again, these include teaching, nursing, and cosmetology. These occupations require a certain level of training defined by hours or semesters, such as student teaching, clinical training, and hands-on classroom training. If you have experience and are not transitioning, list your education atrepparttar 136379 bottom. If you are just starting out or are transitioning, include your relevant education atrepparttar 136380 top. The main idea is to place your strongest selling points first.

If you are involved in doing things forrepparttar 136384 organization, include “active” in your “membership” title. For example, Active Member, ABC Organization, 1998 – Present. If you are actively involved in many unrelated organizations, use your discretion when deciding to include it. You do not need to list experience when listing your affiliations.
