Are you wondering what it would be like to work for a particular company? To find out, you need great intel – and current intel. And that starts by networking with someone on the inside.
One of the top qualities hiring managers are looking for today is your ability to work harmoniously with others. Call it a positive attitude, an agreeable personality, or simply: Are you a likeable person? This, believe it or not, is constantly being evaluated by potential employers and colleagues as they assess your candidacy for a job.
When things are looking up during your job search, it can be effortless to exude likeability. And that is true of life; when things are going well, people around us respond positively to that.
Looking for a new job? Then you have likely experienced one or two frustrating moments – probably more.
Maybe you are waiting for a company to acknowledge receipt of your resume (is that mystifying portal actually a black hole?). Perhaps you’re holding your breath, hoping for news that you have advanced to the next round of interviews. Job hunting can be especially perplexing as we wait for employers to please, please, PLEASE acknowledge our existence.
As they say, the waiting is the hardest part.
