Never underestimate the power of your personal connections. Although your professional skills and experience are impressive, they may not be enough to get you a job interview or land a new role. Thatâs where an influential friend can be helpful. Ask this individual to write you a reference; some praise from them may cause a hiring official to take a second look at your application. It should be no trouble finding someone to say praiseworthy things about you; your talent is evident to anyone who has witnessed it. Onward and upward. Not everyone is on the same timetable as you, and you should not try to rush them to get to where you are. It’s not too hard to see what is holding them back, but just because you understand the problem doesn’t mean you can solve it. This is their issue to deal with, so let them do so. The only way you can help speed things up is to show them what you know. Give them a hint or two about where they need to apply their energy. Then let them know that you are there to help them if needed.
