Ah, another wonderful article! Short but sweet! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Instead, you need to think about what will make you stand out from the crowd.

This one is so important. Never gets old.

So take the time to understand who you are applying to. Figure out what they're looking for. Discover what their values are

This is exactly how I was able to get a traineeship where I am at. I did sooo much research on the company that I just felt like I simply BELONGED there. I remember sitting with the managing director (MD) and a tech lead for a chat to see if our values aligned and such. At one point the MD pulls out some slides and asks me: "So, how much do you know about us?". Hahah, I rambled on and on about the companies history and even mentioned that I knew they loved having BBQ's on their rooftop! ๐Ÿ˜‚ That was an instant win for me.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this topic @rahoulb ! Awesomely done! ๐Ÿ˜Š
