Get the free secrets to job searching with a humanities degree

Small confession: I spent almost a YEAR trying to get a job with a history degree as a recent graduate.

And I failed. At first.

It turns out there were rules to the job search game. I was just ignorant of them.

I started seeing better results when I figured out a few of these. Knowing all 9, I now see excellent results during my job searches, and I don’t even apply to more than a handful at once.

If you’ve ever been frustrated at not getting a callback or a second-round interview, then this is for you.
