Last week, I talked about some excellent advice I got very indirectly -- from my law-school roommate's ex-boyfriend. You never know where good advice will come from.
Here's something else he told me: Try to check every box. If you want a job or a position, make yourself the easy, non-controversial, inevitable choice by meeting every criteria possible.
This advice sounds rather obvious, but I've been surprised by how often it has come in handy.
