It has come to this: even having a perfect resume for the position only nets you a one in five chance of being called for an interview.
Called. Not actually getting the job.

We’re not perfect candidates for anything we do in life. There is no “silver bullet.” Consequently, we need to do the work necessary to meet our work goals no matter the avenue used.
