Do you feel that you have an edge that you can use to your advantage?
You probably have one (or a few), but have you figured out how to demonstrate/communicate this so a potential employer will take notice?
Maybe it’s industry experience, a success story, hard/soft/transferable skills, your network and existing relationships, or something specific to that position or employer that might help give you a leg up.
Are there other things that you can try that you haven’t yet, to help show them your edge?
Stay away from the middle, as that’s where all the others are sitting around and hanging out.
Take pride in your edge.
