Brain-Starting Questions: If you were to meet your ideal employer in front of an elevator, what would you say? Are you as excited about your ideal job as Meghan was? If not, why not? And what can you say or do to prove you're perfect for the job, as Meghan did?

Persistence: Meghan contacted Roepke's office every week for four weeks before landing her initial interview, after which, she was NOT hired. But she persisted by sending writing samples the next day, to further prove her skills.

Brain-Starting Questions: How often have you followed up after your first contact with your ideal employer? How often have you given up after being told just once, "Sorry, we're not hiring."?

Always remember that when an employer says, "No," it means, "Not today." It does NOT mean, "Never come back again."

Meghan didn't take no for an answer. She persisted and proved she could do the job, though no job was open. And she got hired.

What's stopping you from doing the same?
