A man said to the universe, “Sir, I exist!” “However,” replied the universe, “The fact has not created in me a  sense of obligation.” Stephen Crane

A hard lesson learned after much heartache: No one cares who about who I am until shown what I am worth and how I can use that worth to their advantage. All of us have been through the long waits next to the phone hoping for a call from any one of the various places where carefully worded resumes had been dropped. Some of us are still there, waiting expectantly and hopefully. 

What I have learnt is that it is not only a perfect resume that gets you the job. There are many other elements that come together to help in securing that position in a good company that you have always drooled over. It may be difficult, but it is not impossible.

More on this later.
