5 ways to make your job search smarter!
1/ 100% matching!
You need to customize your resume, cover letter or portfolio according to your ambitions, your job targets to get the interviews you're hoping for.

Then, you need to make sure the content of your resume fits the job offer's content and skills. If you see Leadership or Management skills in the job offer, you might want to write those skills on your resume (if you have them of course!!), don't ever lie.
2/ Don't limit your applications to formal jobboards
No matter what what stage of your career you're in, it won't hurt to reach out to friends, alumni, and former colleagues. Even if you don't know the right person, they might. And that referral can make all the difference.
Opt for targeted, personalized emails as opposed to a single spammy message to your entire address book. For an example, take a look at this inquiry email I might send to a former co-worker for potential leads.
3/ Work on the interview question "Why this job? Why you?"

What could be more helpful in an interview than being able to control your racing mind?
