What are your concerns and why is this a problem?

I started dividing the job offer into everything it provides, avoiding preconceptions or assumptions.

What are the parameters?

The Result πŸ†

Retrospective

πŸ‘‚πŸ»

I've received very different opinion about this approach. Would love to listen to yours too!

After talking to mentors and colleagues, the idea of this approach sparked several debates.

I reflected about the mistakes I made:

  1. It is ok that you demonstrate why you care about this job
  2. You need to demonstrate to your recruiter before you are the right person for what he wants to see...
  3. ...before giving way to your "uniqueness" to appear.
  4. Otherwise, for those who don't know you, it can truly be considered fanaticism.
