So, why is it that finding a job has become like walking through a maze? You think you've got some qualifications and some experience. Then you try applying for a job and find out you don't fit any job requirements exactly. So how do you convince someone that you don't know that although you may not be exactly what they say they are looking for, you are exactly what they are looking for. Guess what you can't ! It turns out that although hundreds of thousands of jobs are posted online, few people actually get a job by writing a cover letter and sending a resume to someone that has no clue who they are. Despite your fancy degree and whatever other credentials you may have, it means nothing, if you know no one.

So, I guess the lesson is step outta the maze and learn how to sell yourself--it's just about the only chance you've got.
