Execution: Be knowledgeable about new perspectives on the job market, what works and what doesn't, how to structure a time line, and how to conduct the "back-door" search method that has proven most effective.

This includes the important composition of an "approach" letter for the back-door job-search process, and development of appropriate action plan.
