For anyone in transition, when you see a posted opportunity, try not to feel like it’s a race to get your resume submitted. Take a step back and make every attempt in a 24-hour period to find a common connection, and seek a potential introduction. LinkedIn can help with that. Going for the introduction betters (I would think?) your chances of having your resume placed at the top at the pile. Please…. don’t just hit the “send” button. Be creative.
