    Tactical Takeaways

    1) Focus your efforts and target only a handful of companies (15) that you really want to work at
    NO SHOTGUNNING.

    I am discouraging applying to a bunch of companies on their LinkedIn, websites, Indeed, job application directories, etc… You won’t stand out and you are likely in this position watching this video because you desire a better job that you’ve never had the reach of getting.

    Be deliberate and targeted for who you want to apply to and understand the reasons for WHY you want to. You’ll notice that you’ll be so much more motivated when applying and when you get to the interview stage, that passion and “WHY” will really come out to whoever is hiring you.

    2) Don’t submit a resume / CV (curriculum vitae), AT ALL

    Force yourself to apply through unconventional ways and get yourself to network with people. The only way you’ll progress is if you make yourself UNCOMFORTABLE.
    You need to stand out and that’ll require you to show HOW much you want to work there. Create something like a video explaining why you should work at the company or follow my powerpoint deck presentation.

    Be creative, who doesn’t want to see that?

    3) Think like an investor; think long-term and think about the opportunity

    Is this company impactful? How sustainable is the business model? Do the company values align with me? What’s my upside here, career-wise, financially?

    Being invested in the company you work for has immense benefits by further aligning you. You also want to mitigate your risk and make sure that the company won’t implode and you’ll be without a job in the next year or two. You’re dedicating yourself to the company but unfortunately, that loyalty is not reciprocated and rewarded these days. Find a company that really cares.
