What worked for me: Scheduled interviews with companies I don't intend to join. Noted down questions that I couldn't answer and learned more on those topics. Kept repeating until I made through technical rounds. Now started applying for companies which I'm interested in. Repeated same trick for managerial and client rounds.
This worked for me because I can only perform under pressure, otherwise I get lazy

Set up a weekly goal on what you need to know. See the market on what is needed for ur role and designation. Learn it. Watch/read interview questions. Build a good resume and change it to the needs for whatever company your applying to. And good luck.

Just start giving few interviews in your domain,probably in companies which you can let go, You will get a fair idea about your strengths and what gets asked for your role and domain

Also before applying I look out for companies and profiles I like. Checking out the skills required for the job. Some skills are mandatory and some are optional. I make a list of all mandatory skills from multiple listings. Not being good at mandatory skills is a deal breaker for companies. Being good at optional skills is added benefit.

How do you know if you’re using a good recruiter? I connected with mine when I replied to a mass email because he’s part of a company that allegedly works closely with the firm/type of firm I want to join. We spoke a couple of times and he seems nice but clearly didn’t even review my resume, which I feel is the most important as the first impression doc..? Is it bad to switch to someone else at his company..?
