Boost your chances of getting your dream job DENVER, CO -- Do lots of in-depth research. It's essential that you do lots of thorough research on any role that you love the sound of. That way you'll have a good understanding of what's involved and what would be expected of you. Spend at least a few days researching the role, Googling any questions that you have. Before you even think about applying, you want to know your dream role inside out. This is important, as believe it or not, it can mean the difference between failure and success.

Don't have the key skills or experience? Get it! That way you double your chances of success. If for example, you're looking for roles in photography but are lacking certain skills, take part in a photography workshop. This will give you the chance to learn and perfect the skills that you need. It's better to put off applying and get the skills you need, as this may up your chances of being successful.

Create a resume that stands out for all the right reasons. This means it should have impeccable spelling and grammar, should be neatly laid out, and should list your desirable skills. Think of your resume as your personal advertisement -- it should always show you in the best light possible. Read the job specification carefully and then tailor your resume to it. This boosts your chances of being invited to attend an interview.
