Looking for a job? Highlight your ability, not your experience | Jason Shen

Very few of us hold jobs that line up directly with our past experiences or what we studied in college. Take TED Resident Jason Shen; he studied biology but later became a product manager at a tech company. In this quick, insightful talk about human potential, Shen shares some new thinking on how job seekers can make themselves more attractive — and why employers should look for ability over credentials.

  1. Thanks for this video. I benefited a lot. I have written an article related to the topic of this video. I advise everyone who reads this comment to visit my website from this link :https://newonlinechance.com/9-most-common-job-search-mistakes-to-avoid-detailed-article/
    (the article is titled: 9 Most Common Job Search Mistakes to Avoid |Detailed article)

  2. These days companies have their own job application forms that you have fill in the same freaking things that are written on your resume. Like your name, address, job experience… It is so freaking annoying takes such a loooong time.

  3. Kudos for the Video clip! Forgive me for the intrusion, I would appreciate your thoughts. Have you considered – Chiveard Discovering Potential Framework (probably on Google)? It is a great exclusive guide for finding your true calling and achieving success minus the normal expense. Ive heard some super things about it and my mate at last got cool success with it.

  4. Great video content! Apologies for butting in, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you considered – Chiveard Discovering Potential Framework (search on google)? It is a great one off guide for finding your true calling and achieving success without the hard work. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my friend finally got excellent success with it.

  5. A 20-something explaining the job search. The very same kind of 20- something millenial that would NEVER want to work with nor hire a person over age 32.

  6. I agree with Jason Shen on the fact that our practices for finding a job are outdated. Gone are the days of HR's reading hundreds of resumes or a computer performing a blind keyword search. I found a similar talk to this one that also talks about outdated practices and suggests and idea for a new one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oAZSd1hrxU

  7. Is he reading a script? It sounds memorized, and that's a little distracting. Regardless, it was an interesting speech

  8. Great Video clip! Forgive me for butting in, I would love your opinion. Have you researched – Chiveard Discovering Potential Framework (probably on Google)? It is a good one off guide for finding your true calling and achieving success minus the hard work. Ive heard some super things about it and my cooworker after many years got cool results with it.

  9. Nice in theory, but all they ask about is experience. Nobody wants a master gratuate. They want them, but only if they already got some experience. So.. who is going to give them the first experience? That's the hard part. After that you can basically get jobs where you want and even ask for more money than what they'd give you since you could just go somewhere else.

    For those of you looking for a job, try stuffing envelopes. You can make $50 a hour. The information is real.

  11. applied for 200+ jobs online and got no response from most of them and the ones who replied rejected straight away without even an opportunity for interview. Having a postgraduate degree in MBA from a british university but still can't find a decent job because all companies require expreince and that too loads of it and that too only from the relevant industry and relevant position and don't forget to have a work permit already and a driving license. Really sad and depressing for a fresher where talent and ability does not matter, only experience.

  12. I agree with Jason Shen but I think this theory cannot put in Hong Kong.The hiring system in Hong Kong is looking at your education or your working experience even though it cost us to miss out many people with incredible potential,in Hong Kong still have many employer think that is was a faster way to find a good employee.
