Don’t Focus on the Job Board

Job boards are good for finding companies and roles.

But applying on them won’t get you an interview.

Instead, send them something too good to ignore, (e.g. “Hey, I saw your FAQ page is a bit out of date so I drafted up a new one. Feel free to use it. I’d love to get 15 minutes and learn more about your company and what needs you have”).

Go above and beyond.
