Key takeaways
1. Having the right skills and expertise gets you to the door, but networking with hiring managers helps you walk through the door into a new job.
2. A can-do attitude and your ability to overcome challenges is critical to showcase during the interview.
3. Try to figure out what the company is looking for before the interview. During the interview, be clear about
a) Who you are (traits, motivations, goals)
b) What you do (expertise, skills)
c) How your strengths add to their team (cultural fit, how your skills fill their needs)
