I've been job hunting for the last month, I want a remote job since I'm looking for more job/life balance. Recently, I was told I had diabetes, and it's mostly because in my current job I don't have time to exercise or have a healthy diet. I work more than 45 hours per week, plus commuting in Latin American cities is so horrible, plus I also try to spend some quality time with my partner.
But in this quest, I've found myself responding to cognitive tests and having awful results, as, for instance, "the cognitive aptitude test score is higher than that of 70% of native English college graduates," when jobs require a score of 10%, 20%, or even 30%.
This is repetitive in some positions I'm applying for, and I quite understand that they are looking for the best profiles, but, I also feel like it's a barrier that I may have since I don't come from a high-quality educational system like in developed countries. So I'm feeling that I should give up remote job searching, since I don't feel competitive enough... Any suggestions to improve my skills or job searching? thank-you
