Even when you start your job search with a very strong "in" at an organization, landing a new job will likely require you to pursue multiple job opportunities at the same time. In fact, Amanda Augustine, a job search expert for TheLadders, recommends that job seekers continue pursuing new job leads even as they're entering the final interview round of another opportunity. To help you streamline this process and ensure you land a job with the right company, she encourages you to develop a target company list based upon your job goals.
