education

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.

AN UNREALISTIC TITLE FOR MY AGE
A FIRM YOU MAYBE HEARD OF • 1999-2004

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.

ALMOST THE SAME ROLE AS THE JOB ABOVE
A BIG FIRM • 2006-2017

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.

EXACT ROLE YOU’RE FILLING
A FIRM YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF • 2017-NOW

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.
