But with so many people out looking and unemployed they want the perfect fit. This means that the :
skill/talents+experience/credentials+sector/market vertical fit = perfect candidate.
What is depressing is that so many people with talent and ability go begging for jobs because they don't have sector experience. I have seen people continue to try to break through that barrier with little success.
One solution is to do pro-bono work in a new sector and put it on your resume to move you across the sector chasm.
