Your real competition isn't some job hunter off the street. It's the candidate who was
coached by The Headhunter. Use The Headhunter's insider perspective to your advantage;

9. Raise your standards.
Raise your standards and you raise the standards of everyone around you, including the
manager who's interviewing you or the job candidate you're considering hiring. Never
settle for the status quo. Make things better. When everyone else accepts "what

or go to work with.
Don't settle for what's expected. Raise your standards.
