The short answer is, you don’t! At least not in the conventional sense of the word. Let’s start from the beginning. At some point, there is this environment we seem to exist in. Then, there’s a lot of people, each deciding to do their own thing. Then, while you’re doing your thing, you realize that hey, there’s a lot of other people doing the same thing as me, so might as well do it together.
The thing is, that’s all there really is. There are bunches of people working together to accomplish common goals. There are no actual “jobs”. When there’s a job opening, all that means is that some group is saying, “Hey, we’d like somebody else to do this with us”. Interstingly, since we live in a world where we appear to need to consume resources on a regular basis to exist, that seems to be the most common activity that everyone is interested in. Businesses are a subset of these groups intersted in the acquisition of such resources. Because money is our representation of resources in this society, we have the main theme of businesses – “To Make Money“.
Of course, there are subsets of the make money group as well, such as those who only want to make a certain amount of money and do their other things. For example, a father might want to make just enough to support his family, and have the rest of his time free. An architect might want to design cool buildings and make just enough to live comfortably.
Next time you go talk with a guy in some group (company) who wants to see if you’d like to join them (interview), just show them you like doing their activity. Since the person who hires you will generally be a manager, whose main concern is making the company money, you should focus on how you can make the company money. Of course, if the manager is any good, he’ll know this too, and would like to know that you’re interested in a) making money b) doing the activity in the company that makes the money.
However, no amount of talking will ever equal action. A big pile of stuff that is excellently done pretty much speaks for itself. Would the manager hiring a computer engineer even have to think about it if the guy had won a Turing Award (the Nobel Prize of Computer Science) and made millions in a startup?
