You are Only One Connection Away

one connection awayShould you still aim high for a job you are not qualified for?

Not many people end up with a career in the field they went to college for. But how do you make the leap into a job you want, but may not be qualified for?

You will have an advantage if you know someone. Most companies are willing to hire someone who has the right attitude and personality, but someone on the inside has to know you.

Another approach is to write a letter that tells people why they should hire you. This is your shot to convince people who you are.

Every resume looks the same. What sets you apart is who you are.

Always ask for what you want. More often than you think, people will say yes. Having the tenacity to aim high will impress some people.

Don’t underestimate what you can achieve.

If you want to get into a specific company, get to know people. Work the channels until you meet the right people. Building relationships and meeting people is the key to getting into organizations today. If people don’t know you they can’t help you. The more people you meet, you are one connection closer to meeting the right person you need to get in front of.
