GIL T. PARTY 

Upper-Middle-Level Manager

Profile

An experienced, well-educated professional who looks the part, fits your budget, and appears to have all the right qualifications. Strangely happy to make a lateral move and eager to start ASAP.

Experience

Exact role you're filling
A firm you've never heard of • 2017-now

I’m going to be vague about my experience here because I don’t want you talking to my current employer until I get my payout. The reference I gave you from this job doesn’t work there anymore, but she’ll tell you I know what I’m doing and that you never have to worry about me.

Almost the same role as the job above
A big firm • 2006-2017

I was here for a long time and had some big wins, many of which would have warranted a promotion. Instead, the fresh-out-of-school junior manager I helped recruit for the company three years ago is now my boss and cut my role/salary because I was ‘over-qualified’ for 35% of my job.

An unrealistic title for my age
A firm you maybe heard of • 1999-2004

I talk about this job a lot, especially the title I had. I use it to make you think I’m qualified for more than I actually am, and I hope no one will notice that it was 17 years ago.

Skills
