Be Persistent in your Job Search

Don't get discouraged if you apply for a position and don't get it. If the company has other positions that you think are relevant to your skill set, keep applying. One gentleman did just that with our companies and we didn't select him for the first couple positions, but then a perfect position for him arose and he applied. We have him selected as one of the finalists. So persistence can pay off.

One caveat: don't apply ad nauseum or blanket apply to all positions. This will cause you to lose credibility, coming off desperate because you're really not that good. Just like dating, you don't want to go on the first date and scream I love you, I love you, I love you like Will Ferrell in Elf. Be persistent but don't be annoying.

Good luck in your job search and remember, if there's a company out there that you're excited about pursue them with persistence.

Make a Difference

"One of our strongest instincts as human beings is the innate drive to make a difference. We want to impact people's lives positively and make this world a better place. Go make your mark and add value wherever you can." - Paul Donohue a.k.a P-diddy
 This is the time of year to make a difference. Give a little more. Seek out a way to give back. After all, haven't you already received in abundance
