As some of you know, I am on the hunt for a job.........this morning I looked on the EDD website for jobs and saw one called "Account Manager/Inside Sales". Well, seeing that, I thought 'Hey that's cool - that's what I did and that's what I do.'.
The job duties are as follows:
We are looking for an account manager with strong customer service skills. This position will require heavy data entry of sales orders, sales follow up on quotes sent to customers, regular office duties (phones, filing, etc.) and the ability to do reportong on MS Word and Excel. We are looking for 3-5 years experience as an ACCOUNT MANAGER, INSIDE SALES, or CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE. Only experience with a manufacture or distribution will be considered. Please NO mortgage or retail. Please forward resumes........
Here's my question. Is this discriminatory? Because I might have completely adequate experience, but because my history is in the mortgage industry, they won't look at me or my resume!? Family said "Oh, well, if it's a private place, they can do what they want..." But I then stated "Well, I found this on the EDD website and the Government is advertising this.......".
Am I right here? Is this discrimination.......and what can I do about it?
