Part 15 of our job searching tips.
APPLY FOR JOBS YOU’RE OVERQUALIFIED FOR.
If you have been searching for a while and not been successful consider looking at job vacancies that might be beneath you.
It may be worth taking a lower position in a company in order to get into other jobs later on. (The hidden job market, i.e. jobs that never get advertised) Once your in the company and show what you can do you can look for more suitable jobs.
It may also be that the HR person is also looking for someone just like you for another position that hasn't been advertised at all.
