Secrets to Landing your Dream Job at a US Company #4: Provide Solutions

In a previous blog post, I mentioned how important it was to do research.

This will help you land your dream job because you can learn what you learned to provide solutions. What do I mean by that? Well, the company, the team, the manager, pretty much everyone is dealing with a problem. Or several of them. They have challenges they’re trying to solve. One of the best ways you can show your value is to find out what those challenges are and provide a solution.

Read blogs and social media posts from the company, watch interviews with the supervisors and leading figures. Do informational interviews via LinkedIn. You will find invaluable information about what the company is dealing with. It could be a graphic design challenge. Or a UX problem. Or a technical issue if it’s industrial design.

Whatever it is, show them how you would solve it. Bring your mock-ups, videos, renders, and any other materials you need. Show your deep understanding of the context and background of the issue. Explain to them what your thinking process and analysis was.

And make sure you use the right industry terminology and lingo while you do it.

They will see how great a researcher you are and that you are solution-oriented. After all, that’s why they’ll want to hire you: to help them solve their problems!
