• Ask yourself the following questions before you apply:
- Am I within commutable distance of this job?
- Do I have all the required skills and education they are looking for?*
- If the job requires industry-specific experience, do I have it?*
- If the job requires function-specific experience, do I have it?*
- Do I know someone who works or has worked for this company?
• If you said yes to less than 3 of these questions, it’s not worth your time.
Is the job right for you?
