Target the companies and organizations you believe are a good fit

Now, this is a bit different from what I see many students do today. I want you to step away from the “Spray and Pray” approach of predominantly “applying” for jobs online.


Richard Bolles, author of What Color is Your Parachute?, asserts the most effective way to find a job is to have a complete inventory of your skills, strengths, and then target companies that do work that is interesting to you, and, to which you can contribute.

When 80% of the jobs aren’t publicized, this wisdom is more applicable than ever.
