1. Update your resume.
Even if you are going for a job that does not require a resume, submitting one can improve your chances of getting an interview.
2. Write a cover letter tailored to the company you want to work for.
Find out who you are writing to, a bit of history on the company, and let them know why they should be interested in meeting you.
3. Talk to people who work at the company to find out more about it
Let them know you are interested in any open positions and what your skills set is.
4. Talk to friends (& anyone else that will listen).
5. Follow-up! Follow-up! Follow-up!
Persistency & consistency in your efforts will increase the chances of you getting an interview.
