In this unstable and highly competitive jobs market, everyone wants the best advice on how to stand out from the crowd and secure a richly rewarding, well paid position with long-term potential. But what does it actually take to get and keep the job you want? 97 percent of employers argue that it goes beyond having the right skills—it’s all about the right mindset.
