Here's an excellent story, from the inside out.
It's about doing all the stuff I've been blogging and telling you to do: networking, direct calling potential employers, researching, following through on first contacts, networking some more, following through some more.
And it's about not doing all the stuff I've been blogging and telling you not to do: scanning job boards, polishing up only one letter, only one resume, and sending out an avalanche of stuff hoping to hit by sheer probability.
And this story is told from the inside out--what emotions this strategy bumped into, what was painful, what the most useful internal motivators and attitudes were to make it happen.
