  • Make sure you search broadly – do not narrow your job search only by title because title cannot fully reflect the job role
  • Every position is involved into the company’s mission and contribution. If you get the idea (think out of the box) of what the business strategy/plan/culture you will link the job opening with what is exactly the hiring manager is looking for. If you can find what the connections in the organization and what the rules are then you’ll make a stronger application and better sense of what they are looking for
