It’s time to get more strategic in terms of your career. Think more analytically about how you can get to where you want to be, and be bolder! Is there someone you know who knows someone who knows someone who can get you in the door at your dream job? Shoot them an e-mail and see what happens. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. To create a better future, it’s perfectly okay to use your past relationships. They want to help you, so give them a chance to do it.
