Here is your Job Hunting Zen Thought of the Week!
You applied to that really cool-looking job online.
They received over 400 applicants for the position.
The company called you for an interview. You went in and met with the team.
You may or may not get the job, but you comprised 0.25% of the candidate pool, and you got the chance to sell yourself in person.
One in 400 certainly beats the odds. And if you've made it this far, you certainly have a chance to nail the job!
