Get a job interview at any company, Rise to the top of the pile...

 

6 months before I graduated college I was applying for jobs. I would identify a company with a big name, like DeBeers, AMEX or RedBull, scour through their online job postings, put together a cover letter, attach my resume with average grades and hit submit. Zero interviews, no network and 3 months later, I was doing the same thing while embracing a 4 day a week celebratory marathon of debauchery. By Graduation, I was fried, losing confidence in the job market, about to go on a vacation that would bankrupt me and jobless. 3 months after graduation, I was waiting tables on an island off the coast of Massachusetts, a beautiful place, but not what I was planning on or shooting for 9 months before.
