One mistake people often make in their job seeking is to apply, apply and apply, for whatever jobs they can find. Firstly this may not be an efficient way; secondly, the day when you get a job offer may be the day you start to suffer! The right way we recommend is to start the job hunting process by understanding yourself - what type of person you are, what you find interesting and what you are good at. This can help you find the right direction and only spend your energy on something you can build a career with.
