Here's something to think about: learning to walk. You don't remember doing it, but somebody thought it would be a valuable skill to have. You picked it up, no problem. Walking is good. It's a way to get places; it's the gateway to running, skipping, dancing and all sorts of other good things.
After years of repetitive work, Albi is living in the land of opportunity and feeling pretty much like a prisoner in a jail he built himself. He makes a decent living, provides for his family, relaxes on the weekends. And is dying. Of boredom. He'd rather do something else, but changing careers at this point would mean risking that decent living, the comfort of his family and those relaxing weekends. For Albi, retirement can't come soon enough. And when it does, what then?
Job seeker "Joe" told me his resume is an "approximation" of his background. "You mean, you lied on your resume?" "Just a little," he replied, adding, "Nobody cares." Well, I do. And I'm guessing other hiring managers might care, too. Just a little.
