"Eighty percent of success
is showing up." - Woody Allen
You don't have to see the whole staircase to take the first step.
Once you know what position you are applying for, I like to call the tactics that help you land the job Brass Tacks:
Resumes + Cover Letters
Job Search and LinkedIn help you locate the door, the Cover Letter opens the door, the Basic Message and Resume gets your foot in the door, and the Interview gives you the chance to get a seat at the table.
