What if you were hiring someone?
The key to understanding job hunting is trying to see the process from the hirer's perspective. They are looking for the right person but what makes the right person?
Simply, a hirer is trying to answer just three questions: Can they do the job? Will they like the job? Will they fit into the organisation?
Put yourself in their shoes...
If you can answer yes to the above and you can prove this to the hirer, you are 99% of the way there.
