Is it better to follow the norm
Is it better to be yourself?
We may opt to follow the norm in order to be popular,
But is that always a good idea?
We have to make our own personality that can stand up in tough times.
From time to time I get to go to employment workshops with Wounded Warrior Project. When people see my resume online with military service and a master’s they are excited.
But the excitement seems to intensified when they see me. Many of these recruiters had not seen my resume before
So when I said I was an MP
And I have a master’s in Forensic Accounting they all seemed to be very surprised.
You just don’t usually see that.
Add to that I am disabled which can be very helpful for employees including tax breaks.
So being different is a good thing.
Are you being different or following the norm?
