Interpersonal Dynamics in the Business Organization
- Between your sophomore and junior years, you quit school for a year to earn money to finish college. You worked as a loan-processing assistance in a finance company, checking references on loan applications, typing, and filing. Your manager made a lot of the fact that he had never attended college. He seemed to resent you for pursuing your education, but he never criticized your work, so you thought you were doing OK. After you’d been working there for six months, he fired you, saying that you had failed to be thorough enough in your credit checks. You were actually glad to leave, and you found another job right away, at a bank doing similar duties. Now that you’ve graduated from college, you are working on updating your resume. Will you include the finance company job in your work history? Explain.
- Many people don’t have a clear career path when they enter the job market. If you’re in this situation, how would your uncertainty affect the way your write your resume?
