If you’re still seeking, consider sparking a conversation 

Some of the most fulfilling work opportunities I’ve had sprouted from conversations. If you’re not finding the perfect next career move on a job board, consider following social media accounts, websites and newsletters of specific companies, small businesses or industries you dream of working with. Professionally reach out with an introduction and as about openings. You never know if building targeted relationships could lead to your ideal next gig.
