Whether you’re into flying planes or have a taste for wine making, we’re in it together. Here are a few simple steps to make sure you’re ready when you find the right role.

  • Reach out to your network: If there’s one thing that can give you a serious leg up in your job search, it’s your connections. Before applying, see if you know someone who works the company and send a quick message -- candidates who were referred by a current employee are 8 times more likely to land the job.  

  • Ditch the one-size-fits-all resume. More than 50% of professionals find it challenging to customize their resume for a specific role, but Resume Assistant provides the top skills other professionals in your desired role and industry have, as well as job requirements from real job postings. You can then think about how your applicable skills can be transferable for the role you want, then tailor your resume to fit that role.

  • Don’t be afraid to try new things: Keep an eye on companies you admire and set job alerts to stay on top of the jobs they’re hiring for. If something looks interesting, do your research to learn about the company and team so you’re prepared for an interview. You may find a position you never considered, but feels like a perfect fit for you.
