Your Job Hunt is a Sales Process


Sales is not just a type of career. It's how you land a job. You are selling a product and that product is you!

Two key ways to do this:
- Follow up repeatedly
- Be personal in your outreach

In this post, Bradley Metz shares how he employed this strategy and landed 5 interviews in a week. (You can too).


Quote of the Day

“The old way of sending out a hundred resumes is completely dead. That is the most average strategy, and it’s going to lead to the most average result. And if you want to radically improve your chances at getting a job you actually like, you have to do something to stand out from the crowd.”
