Online resumes and applications are designed in such a way that they do not truly give a person the opportunity to tell much about themselves or for others to learn much about them.
I am self-educated. I was given the greatest gift I have ever received, the tool to learn, by the nurse that cared for me in the hospital, as a child. Most employers stop reading, no matter how interested they may have been in me, at the employment section of my resume or online application.
It is my honest opinion that anyone who passes me by simply due to my lack of a college degree is doing themselves and their company a disservice.
I would like to point out to anyone reading this letter that it only stands to reason that a person who is able to teach themselves, as I did, with only the ability to recognize letters and know the sounds of those letters, must have something special to bring to any employment or life situation.
Take a moment to think of what may have happened if you yourself were in the same position I was. Would you have made it? Perhaps.
My personal and business motto is also my favorite quote is: “If a person shows you who they are, Believe Them” Let me show you, not only who I am but also what I am capable of.
