I'm trying to give my little brother some advice on moving into his "dream" company and am at a loss for what to tell him.
He's been targeting a certain BB for the last 3 years and says that he's had tons of people pass on his resume for different roles. He's stuck on this one company for god knows what reason (I think it's prestige) and hasn't had much luck. He says that all his contacts there are someone's child or relative or are somehow closely "connected" to who runs the company.
I think that he should cut his losses and find a place where he'll be well-paid and wanted, but he keeps responding back with the fact that it's his "lack of strong connections" that hurts him.
So my question is, HOW do you build these supposedly "strong" connections with people to get your foot in the door for good?
As I see it, even the shittiest of shit companies like to hire their friends and relatives, so he can't keep relying on that excuse.
