Create an Action Plan
When you pitch a company, go the extra mile and send an action plan for what you'll do the first 30 days on the job. Examples of what to include in your plan:
Customer Success role: "I'll create a weekly email to all existing clients to build engagement"
Sales role: "I'll record a cold call practice session each morning and send to my AE for feedback."
Dev. role: "I’ll audit your marketing tech - make sure events are firing everywhere they should."
Marketing role: "I'll audit analytics and build out A/B tests on for all pages on website."
Any role: "I'll do those annoying spreadsheet tasks you're sick of doing"
