Read the quote from Thomas L. Friedman. Mr. Friedman writing in the New York Times (May 29, 2013) is quoting Eleonora Sharef, one of the two co-founders of HireArt, a company matching individuals to potential employees.
HireArt asks just one question of a potential employee –
AES graduates reinvent themselves regularly, they understand the mix of business and engineering, and very definitely ...
they add value to the company that hires them.
"People get rejected for jobs for two main reasons, said Sharef. One, “you’re not showing the employer how you will help them add value,” and, two, “you don’t know what you want, and it comes through because you have not learned the skills that are needed.” The most successful job candidates, she added, are “inventors and solution-finders,” who are relentlessly “entrepreneurial” because they understand that many employers today don’t care about your résumé, degree or how you got your knowledge, but only what you can do and what you can continuously reinvent yourself to do."
