    I find it easier to get jobs by networking. This job was a complete act of networking. In fact, looks like most of the people I work with did, as well.

    I got my current job after applying to 100+ other jobs, and mainly, I got it because I knew someone (my mother and another person) who worked for the organization already. The other deciding factors were the fact that I was obviously not a dumbass and had a genuine desire to help people by solving problems.

    It was through job board postings. Actually, I went to 10 unsuccessful interviews at different places before an 11th interview was successful. Matches somewhat with your statistics there.

    i remember at one job. i told my boss that i wanted to
    move to x department. he said i had to wait a few more
    months. so i marched across the street to a rival agency,
    and found the head of the department i wanted to work in
    and asked for a job. and i got it.

    i only send out resumes to do check my market value.
    but if there's a specific job i want it. i go out for it.

    I was asked when a gym was opening to come and work there. I found some jobs by asking and some others by seeing openings. I read that book a long time ago, I guess the biggest take away was know your own style. I like Pathfinder as a career book too. Basically the same message I took away. Know your own style and develop it.

    I rolled into it. At first with the intention to keep it temporary, but I got stuck.
