The Three Things You Need To Do To Land Your Dream Job

1. Do it for free first. If you aren’t willing to do it for free, than it probably isn’t your dream job. Also, if you are interested in changing or pursuing a dream career, try it out for free to see if it is something you would actually want to pursue.

2. Do it better than anyone else. Do your job not just better than expected, but better than anyone else can do it. It is easy to say this…but actually follow through by doing the small things right. 

3. Do the things no one else is willing to do. Find something no one is willing to do (the grunt jobs) and do those jobs, and do them very well. The leaders of your dream industry will appreciate the your attentional to detail and willingness to succeed.
