Finding a job is an exhilarating, exasperating mess. You think you’re about to get the perfect everything with five weeks of vacation and a company card and it falls through. You know a guy who knows a guy who can set you up, and the opportunity fades away. The jobs on Monster and CareerBuilder that you know you’re qualified for are few and far between, while the ones that pique your interest are at places you know won’t be interested in your 2.1 GPA and standing beer pong record at the frat house. Or maybe you were a stellar student, loyal employee, and research machine who just isn’t the best under the bright lights in front of a panel of judges. Wherever you’re coming from the basics don’t change.
