Getting there was NOT half the fun but knowing
ways you can be hired can be a big part of your
approach to getting the job you really want. But
it does take work, planning, and determination.

Always remember doing your homework to identify targeted employers, learning
about the company and if they hire people like yourself, making connections into
the company through people you know or can be introduced to (i.e., networking),
building a strong compelling LinkedIn Profile and a hard-hitting resume plus
a solid prep for interviewing and you should do well. This is not a weekend effort.
Do it quickly and you have fast garbage. Also, remember some companies offer their
employees a "bounty" to find people they want to hire. The amount of the "bounty"
varies by position, company, and need but can be anywhere from a few hundred
dollars into thousands of dollars. There is often a requirement that the hired
person must remain employed for 6 to 12 months (policy dependant) and have a
good performance assessment.
