Rank #8: Hatem Hanoun: The 'No Experience' Abyss

Podcast cover
Read more
Hatem Hanoun works for Bayt.com the #1 job site in Dubai and surrounding region. He shares with us his advice for the job hunt. Since that region is facing 20-30% unemployment for young people we focus on strategies for gaining experience that you can leverage in your job interviews. It may be an unpaid, volunteer, experience but if it gives you relevant experience to talk about in an interview then it may be worth it. For Some in the middle-east, volunteering might be the only way to gain valuable experience and stop staring into the abyss of rejection caused by not having any experience. For listeners in the US, it may be a 'long game' strategy worth a try. Host Justin Dux.

-What was your favorite client success story from 2016? (about how they got a job)

A listener emailed me to say she was being deemed overqualified for the jobs she was applying to and asked if we could do a podcast on the subject.

Overqualified generally means you are a CFO applying for a controller job or a Director of Marketing of a $20 million firm applying for a Marketing Manager job of a start-up company ... you bring more experience to the table than the job needs and employers get afraid that you will be bored or will leave when a better job comes along.

-How do you advise people to craft their resume if they want to apply to a job that might be overqualified for?
