Don’t Put All Your Eggs In One Basket.
“But this is my dream job!”
While that may be true, you will have a better chance of getting a better job if you don’t rely on a single opportunity.
Wouldn’t it be great to have two or three job offers to choose from? That’s only going to happen if you diversify your job search. Apply for multiple positions — even a couple you think you wouldn’t necessarily accept.
You never know — you might learn in the interview process that it really is your dream job — or the company might even create your dream job for you, once they know what you have to offer them.
