Austin was very methodical in his job search, he interviewed at 100 companies of which 40 called him back. But he wanted to the best job possible and was clear on his values and his role. So it took him a year to find the best job but in the end he had many companies like Google, Uber, Facebook and other tech companies fighting for him until he finally got hired at Microsoft.
He did this by finding the role that he wanted within the company and contacting the supervisor for that role in the target company. Then he would have an informational interview with them before coming back and providing value in the form of problems he could solve for them. The people were usually blown away by his effort and would call him in for an interview or try to hire him right there!!
So if you're looking for the perfect job, listen to this episode and find out how Austin did it!
