In a job hunt, some experts say that connections are the most important influence in landing a job. Without a personal referral to pass your résumé along to a manager or who can put in a good word for you, your chances of landing a job are supposedly nonexistent. I disagree with this statement to a certain extent, I do feel it's helpful to know someone who can help you get through the door, but there are other ways of securing an interview or securing a role at a company. Not everyone knows someone employed at the company that their interested in, but it is possible to find some of the current employees on LinkedIn and ask if they could become a mentor to you and or provide a reference, they can communicate to the company that they believe in your professional abilities. #Truth #advice #Jobsearch #Networking #Connections

Funny thing, people tend to leave a couple of key factors out of the "who you know" equation. First off, the saying is wrong. Allow me to correct it. "Who you know" is not good enough. The true benchmark is "how they know you". what kind of worker do they consider you? It's not good enough for them to simply "like" you. Their placing their reputation on the line. I know some friends. that I wouldn't hire even if highly qualified. The final part is making that you're in position. You have to be ready with your credentials, skills, etc. in order.
In closing, it is my humble opinion picked up from years of experience that the key to success in just about everything is Position, Preparation, and Promptness.

Of course, a personal referral to pass your CV is a great idea, but I think think that it is more important to take care of the personal statement and make sure that it is free of mistakes. I prefer to ask experts from https://edubirdie.com/personal-statement-editing-service for help with editing. Once my personal statement along with my application will be on review by the recruiter or college teacher, I am sure that it will receive great feedback.

When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES. First of all, there's the name that the family use daily, Such as Peter, Augustus, Alonzo or James, [...] But I tell you, a cat needs a name that's particular, A name that's peculiar, and more dignified... Such as Bombalurina, or else Jellylorum— Names that never belong to more than one cat... But above and beyond there's still one name left over, And that is the name that you never will guess; The name that no human research can discover— But THE CAT HIMSELF KNOWS, and will never confess. #cat #names #yourself #knows #truth
