The Internet (and more so the Web) is full of noise. People’s minds are constantly bombarded and they struggle to decode clear and actionable signals. Remember this when you are trying to get your signal through…
1. The Noise Problem
2. The Underlay Problem
3. The Portfolio Problem (Proof of Experience)
4. The Ingestion Process
5. The Search Problem
6. CV / Résumé Format
7. ATS (Applicant Tracking System) and Keywords
8. Recruiters and Sourcers are Human
9. Prime the Hiring Manager and Team
10. Referrals, References, and Referees
11. Important Research
If you really want this job you need to work for it. Long gone are the days of point, shoot, and wait. Get off your ass and through your own actions (not those of others) collapse down the multiverse to the one with the greatest probability of you getting as far down the funnel as you can, ethically! Own your outcomes. Carve your future.
Note: If you do secure an offer then learn what you need to know about negotiating here and here.
The future is offline, but who are YOUR champions and advocates?
