How do you find a job when you need to bypass general biases of the market? Get in front of decision makers! This episode, EVP Rick Cobb gives great advice on how to get in front of real people who can make a difference in your job search, the best approaches once you get your foot in the door, and what not to say to remove yourself from the running.
