      Don’t Make A Big Career Move Without Checking These 3 Boxes First

      Timing isn’t everything when it comes to risky career moves, but it’s no minor consideration, either.

      However you enter into the application process with a company, submitting your application is not the end of your work. In fact, it’s just the beginning of a long and hopefully fruitful relationship–which makes it extra frustrating when you submit your information and don’t hear back for days and days, or even weeks and weeks.

      This Nordic Tech Company’s Onboarding Secret? Cinnamon Buns

      Job Searching? Skip The Job Boards And Take These Five Steps Instead

      It might prove better to look for opportunities off the beaten path, and one way to do that is to reach out to target employers before they post any openings–call it the art of the “speculative job application.” If you do it right, you’re more likely to connect directly with the decision-makers inside companies, without having to elbow past dozens or hundreds of other candidates.

      “We’re going out to get some drinks after work, do you want to come?” You think: No, I’ve been here all day and would rather go home and stare at my TV.

      How To Impress Recruiters When You’re Unemployed

      Chances are you already know a little bit about bias. People are constantly judged for what they wear, how they speak, how much is in their bank accounts–and opportunities can be lost simply because someone sees you in an inaccurate way.
