But what he states as most important is that the candidate knows what he wants to do and is guided by it, so he doesn’t write too many cover letters or turn in different directions.
“When you know what you want, you can easily answer what motivated you to apply to a certain company and to the desired job. And the answer to that question is extremely important,” explained the Microsoft expert.
