You can help make your dream job come true by working hard, staying active and engaged, and recognizing the best available methods. Here are 10 tips for getting your dream job:

  1. Meet with someone who has your dream job. You might quickly realize your “dream” isn’t what you envisioned. If not, you’ll learn effective ways to reach your goal.
  2. Use creative resume alternatives — but only when prudent. A creativity-driven company could be swayed by a splashy video instead of a cover letter.
