Here's how to do step 2:
Now that you have clarity on what role to target, do the following to get yourself interviews:
Identify 10+ posts that fit your target role.
Identify the 6 most common responsibilities that show up in each post.
Write a resume that sells you for that post by re-framing all your experiences to fall under those 6 responsibilities.
