How do you stand out amongst your competitors when job searching? You use marketing and networking techniques that differentiate yourself and your value so well while repeatedly reaching out and nurturing leads to hiring managers, recruiters, and connections… until you eventually convince someone to hire you.
It is just like dating- where timing is everything. You might find the RIGHT job in the RIGHT company, but they may not be ready to hire you- so keep that connection on the back burner and keep reaching out to multiple leads until you make the RIGHT opportunity happen. Patience and persistence are key.
