6 ways to separate yourself from other job candidates
1. Be the only candidate who has read this entire article.
2. Have a sense of humor about yourself and the position you are applying for, but don’t be an asshole about it.
3. Have a portfolio that shows your ability to be creative on a project (as well as your skills) and that shows you have industry knowledge in at least two different areas of interest (i.e., not just one).
4. Be able to show how you meet all of the requirements in these three bullet points above, or have a compelling story to tell about how they describe you anyway! Don’t just say “I’m great!” or “I’m motivated!”—show it!
5.

1. Your application is tailored to the job.

4. You make sure your cover letter highlights why you are a great fit for the job, explains how your experience has prepared you for this role, and makes sure any gaps in your resume are explained or filled by highlighting relevant experiences that demonstrate how you’ve met those gaps (or what you plan on doing next).
5. You show up early! This shows that not only do you have confidence in yourself as a candidate but also that you are willing to commit more time than most candidates do when interviewing with someone new—and we all know how valuable time is during an interview process!
6. Lastly, make sure that if it’s a phone interview that they speak directly into their phone so they can hear their own voice during an interview

5. Have answers ready for questions about why you are interested in the job and what makes this company different from other companies where you have worked before (or want to work).
6. Rehearse your answers so that they sound natural and confident when they come out of your mouth during the interview!
