People hire people they know, like and trust. So the secret to landing your next job is to build and nurture relationships.
Think about it. If the hiring process were truly about hiring the most skilled person, why would they interview you? Wouldn’t a company just want to see proof of your skills? But this isn’t what happens during an interview. An interview is a conversation, not a technical skills assessment. Sure, there might be a skills assessment in there somewhere, sometimes. However, the interview is pretty darn important.
So what do you have to do to land an interview today? These posts will help you figure that out, sooner rather than later!
