How long do I have to wait before I get hired?
This depends on you. You can wait for an employer to hire you, which could take longer. The fastest way to get hired is to apply for multiple jobs that you are qualified for, and immediately reply when there are inquiries. Limit your application to jobs that are good matches for your skills and experience. This is so you don’t waste time applying for a position that you have little to no chance of getting.
It also helps to apply for several types of jobs. Consider the core skills you have and think about how these can be used in several other, albeit slightly different, jobs.
