Entering the job market can be uncomfortable, scary, and filled with uncertainties. Achieving success can be as simple as following a process, maintaining consistency, and measuring results.   Modus Operandi, by definition, is a particular way or method of doing something, especially one that is characteristic or well-established. At Keen On You, we describe MO by; tactic, path, organization, medium, and measure.  Tactic: Conduct research and create a job search plan.
