Companies often have an employee, who over the years filled many roles and moved on. Instead of creating a job description based on need, companies create a job description based on that employee. We may have qualified applicants but the hiring manager will see that skill set, honed over years, as non-negotiable.

- Then, of course, there’s research.
- Finally, pay careful attention to your resume, and be aware of how it’s used.
