The secret to landing your dream job? Hard work.

Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES, CA -- Victoria Young has figured this out, and she's still in college. The 20-year-old University of California-Los Angeles senior, her sights set on a marketing position in an entertainment company, has interned with Sony Corp. and is now interning with Disney Worldwide Outreach, a division of Walt Disney Co.

She's already a skilled networker, e-mailing friends, former co-workers and current Disney colleagues to let them know of her job interests and handing out the business cards she received through her part-time job as a campus sales rep for Dell Inc. Getting hired is all about doggedness and focus. It means throwing yourself out there over and over again and facing rejection. Again and again.

Important things to do along the way:

  • Post your resume online (more info)
  • Apply directly to a companies (more info)
  • Tap the "hidden" job market through networking
  • Contact a recruiter (more info)
  • Research the company and job before the interview
  • Be patient
