I am very familiar with the recruiting side of Human Resources. I worked as a Recruiter in the past and had the privilege of first hand experience in Corporate America, Non-Profit as well as different branches of  Government.  I enjoyed some parts of recruitment more than others.

The part I enjoyed the least was reviewing and rating resumes, lots and lots, and piles of resumes.  Starting out it would take me a long time to carefully read/review/analyze resumes and classify them in one category or the other. Over time, I became proficient and quick, knowing the key things to scan for (*A seasoned recruiter does not read resumes).

In the Private and Non-Profit sector, resumes would be rated and categorized in one of the following categories:

Qualified- resume shows relevant experience and/or educational requirements. Applicant is referred to Hiring Manager.

Pursuing a Stronger Candidate- resume shows relevant experience but candidate is a job hopper;  or,  a candidate applying for an Administrative Assistant position  has formatting and spelling errors on resume. Consequently this Applicant will not be referred to the Hiring Manager.

Not Qualified- self explanatory; no relevant experience. Applicant will not be referred to the Hiring Manager.

The process for reviewing resumes is uniquely different in Government.

Contrary to the Private sector, In Government, a candidate cannot be disqualified simply because the resume shows evidence of job hopping, spelling errors or sloppy formatting. The review and rating is strictly based on qualifications/experience/education and candidate status factors for example, if the applicant is a current or former Government employee and depending on the sector of Government a US Citizen.

As we conclude the Kingdom Ambassador Orientation Series. I am pleased to let you know that our Kingdom is recruiting for Ambassadors.

You will not be disqualified for not having it "all together"

The Kingdom Handbook states that:

Romans 3:22-24 (International Children’s Bible)
 God makes people right with himself through their faith in Jesus Christ. This is true for all who believe in Christ, because all are the same. 23 All people have sinned and are not good enough for God’s glory. 24 People are made right with God by his grace, which is a free gift. They are made right with God by being made free from sin through Jesus Christ.
Are you interested in becoming a Kingdom Ambassador? Apply with your conviction and interview by your daily interactions, choices and lifestyle.

God Bless you! It is my prayer that we will continue to ever sharpen our skills, build up positive experiences, develop and grow in the prestigious position as:
Kingdom Ambassadors


  1. Nice one.. We are all called to God and made right with him through grace. We are all d same in d eyes of God. Thanks for this reminder sis.

    1. Naturally none of us are qualified, or worthy of this calling, It's only the Grace of God that gives us this privelage to represent God's Kingdom here on earth. Thanks Ifeoma!

  2. Love the analogy. No inadequacy can disqualify us.

    1. Perfectly summarized Atilola! No inadequacy can disqualify us if we desire to take this position.

  3. Nice one! Good to hear you have a backgroud in HR (getting to know you better :-)
    Love the comparison with recruitment to be an Ambassador for Christ. Thank God that we don't have to come fully qualified either, we can come as we are.

    1. "We don't have to come fully qualified either" Thanks for that contribution Ayo! Thats right, Professional development opportunities are always available. We never stop learning and improving if we want to rightly represent the Kingdom of God.

  4. "interview by your daily interactions, choices and lifestyle"

    Beautifully said and such a challenge too. I do thank God that only I can disqualify myself.

    1. Hey Jummy! Ito gets easy when we remember that we are representing Christ And take self out.
