Q: I’m looking for high-salaried work and I don’t know how to stand out from the competition.
A: When people think about standing out in the job search, they often think of gimmicks like skywriting or a resume made out of chocolate (or is that just me?). However, to get hired for your dream job, you need more than just to be a better version of everyone else. It requires upfront work and strategizing. Here are the steps that I guide my clients through to stand out over all the other peacocks:
If you’re thinking about entering into a highly competitive field, my number one piece of advice is to love whatever it is you’re doing. It often takes patience and persistence to actually get hired so you’ll need extra motivation to keep going if the rejections start to pile up. If you’re doing it just for the money, that will come across in the interview. So find the occupation where you love both the work AND the salary. Then, you’re setting yourself up for the good life!
