This week you’ll be invited to apply for a highly desired position. There’s no denying that this is a unique opportunity and that you’re flattered just to be asked, however, there’s no denying that lots of other people have also been contacted about the same spot. The question is whether you feel like going through the hassle of a competition right now. Your world has recently been turned upside down, and the timing of this couldn’t be worse. Nevertheless, it doesn’t hurt to answer the invite, submit a resume, and agree to an interview. You might be in better standing than you think.
