You do have a point. Résumé scanners don't recognize things like color so if you make it to the human review pile, an "odd" résumé might actually help because everybody else looks the same.

More eye time with a good sales pitch is better than copying your more successful neighbor.

HEY! HE BOUGHT A BOAT! MAYBE IF I BUY A BOAT I WILL BE HAPPY LIKE BOB JONSES TOO!

I;m talking about if you are receiving UC. Of course u can't do that if there is no money coming in

The purpose of UC is to help you find a job that is similar to your previous job or a job that is better

How are we going to know what you're talking about if you don't make it clear in the beginning? State your intent and purpose from the get go.

Is this a thread about the unemployed or about filling an online app for a dishwashing position?

It's obviously about unemployed people if I am talking about completing a online application.


And why does someone have to be so quick to settle for low level and not atleast try to get something better?

Its obviously yet another long, random thread that has no real question, and answers that the OP refuses to accept. Like every single other thread the OP starts. Supposedly this OP actually is supposed to be helping people get jobs, and must be failing royally at it if he can't figure out why any company, or landlord, does background checks or has joined the 20th century and accepts online apps only.

Its a constant round about of wasted time for everyone. Unless you're just killing time in line at the grocery store.

The Bills you are talking about can't be paid if you don't have it. They just have to get the hell in line until the money starts flowing in.
