Focus on skills and strengths to land the perfect job, blogger Rachel Vera advises in this post. Job seekers should research the industry where they want to work and follow specific employers to learn about them before applying for a job. Candidates should hone their skills and develop a portfolio that shows their best work. "Also, if you have free time while you're job searching, learn a new skill, volunteer your time, take a class. Be proactive in trying to improve yourself," Vera writes.
