Our Advice: Always be sure to double and triple check your documents to ensure accuracy and coherency so you don’t foul out before you even get the chance to interview.
2. Maintain a Winning Attitude
Not every job application is going to produce the results you had hoped for – no matter how perfect the job may have seemed at the time you submitted it. Therefore, it is imperative that you maintain a positive attitude that will serve to carry you through the ups and downs of the job search process.
