Are you worried about your resume not being perfect?
Chin up and listen to Regina Hartley’s (currently VP Human Resources at UPS) speech from 2015 about her hiring choices:
Given the choice between a job candidate with a perfect resume and one who has fought through difficulty, human resources executive Regina Hartley always gives the “Scrapper” a chance. As someone who grew up with adversity, Hartley knows that those who flourish in the darkest of spaces are empowered with the grit to persist in an ever-changing workplace.
“Choose the underestimated contender, whose secret weapons are passion and purpose,” she says. “Hire the Scrapper.”
I believe that this doesn’t apply only to workplace. Surrounding yourself with scrappers is definitely enriching and fun.
Love, your Scrapper A.
