How do you stand out from other candidates? Vonnetta Ewing, Director of Talent Acquisition at Take-Two Interactive Software says that she usually gets over 400 applicants for just one job opening. Standing out means doing your research. Asking for informational interviews, making sure your cover letter and résumé are top-notch. Utilizing the power of LinkedIn and reaching out to people in the industry you want to get into. It takes tenacity and work, but all it takes is one person to connect you with the right opportunity to start your career.
