If you want to stand out in the job search and interviews, the cold hard truth is that you have to do a little more than everyone else. Go the extra mile. You'll be one of the few.
How do you go the extra mile in a job search?
To get interviews, stop applying online to jobs and instead, directly contact hiring managers. Applying for jobs is the same road that all the other job seekers are on. It's crowded and you will get lost in the traffic.
To stand out in interviews and get the offer, you must bring a 30-60-90-Day Plan. Should you bring a 30-60-90-Day Plan to your first interview? Absolutely. Others won't, so you will stand out. You will have a better interview and you'll be more likely to get the offer.
If you haven't heard back from the company by the time they said you would, don't just sit and wait like everyone else. Follow up.
These are the "go the extra mile" things that make you stand out.
