• Get Coffee: Ask an employee in your targeted company or field to coffee and ask them what makes a great employee for the job or company. You'll learn a lot about the company and you'll likely gain an ally who can direct you to open positions.
• Know Yourself: Understand your personality, passion, skills and values. Study how you are made. Employers have a hard time knowing you if you don't know you.
• Stuff the Fluff: Get rid of the fluff in your resume and cover letter. Get straight to your accomplishments and experience. Be humbly confident in what you bring to the table.
