So, you applied for a job, took a lot of time and effort with the application process, were really enthusiastic, had all the skills and experience required… And didn’t even make the interview.
It happens. And, when it does, it’s easy to give up, to believe that you couldn’t have done the job anyway.
But there’s nothing to stop you doing the job, or something very like it, off your own bat. Okay, you won’t get an office, free coffee, or a salary (at least at first), but, if you have a genuine interest, the salary may well follow on from that – and it may be better than you would have been paid if you’d got the job.
Social media, including blog sites like WordPress, are your friend at this point – it costs nothing to set up a WordPress blog, a Facebook page, and a Twitter feed – not in the name of the company you applied to, of course, but in a name of your choosing.
Don’t follow the job description to the letter – innovate around it, extrapolate from it, make it your own.
You might just be surprised at what comes from opening a side door when the main one was slammed in your face.
