Table Of Contents
Careers are shaped as much by who you know as by what you know. Invest in your long-term success by taking intentional measures to curate and cultivate your relationships.
During the recruiting process, you may think employers are in control because they get to decide if you are qualified for their job. But remember that you have immense power in this process through your ability to say “no” to a job. Before inviting a company to assess you, make sure that you would want to say “yes” to them.
As difficult as getting a job is, keeping that job is sometimes a more significant challenge. Your goal is to do more than get a job – it’s to get a fulfilling job where you will be successful. So it’s a good idea to begin integrating into the company as early as your first interview. By taking integration and success into consideration before you join a company, you increase your chances for sustained success and improve your decision-making during the recruiting process.
