You spot a posting for a job you’re interested in. It fits perfectly with your background, skills, and experience. You feel a rush of excitement and jump at the opportunity to start applying for a job. You quickly submit your resume and application and check your email and voicemail inboxes obsessively for the next few weeks. And you wait. And wait. And wait. Until you realize, you’re not going to get that call. You think to yourself, “…but I was so perfect for that job!” And maybe you were. But you moved too quickly and didn’t take the necessary steps before submitting your application.
