The time to play it safe has passed.
Go out of your comfort zone and find a whole new world of opportunities!!
You, too, can find your dream job by first deciding what the qualities of the job or the people you will work with are. Once you decide what's more important to you, you can begin to follow up leads and tell friends and interviewers what you prefer. Most of the people who agree to see you for informational interviews want to help people who are eager to help themselves and who pay it forward.
