Problem

Limited means of marketing employable skills

Other Names:
Unmarketed available skills
Nature:
One reason unemployment and underemployment continue is people do not have the marketing skill to sell their own intellectual, physical or technical skills.
Claim:
Most resumes list the jobs the person has held. A few then describe the job the person would like to get. Very few even mention what the person has done well and can do well. Even fewer state what a future employer can and should expect from that person. Very, very few, in other words, yet look upon themselves as a 'product' that must be marketed.
Problem Type:
E: Emanations of other problems
