In the last video, we discussed the 5x5x5 Research Method, learning how to reverse engineer job openings to match our interests. This step helped us find a variety of sources of information related to our dream job and gave us an opportunity to start interacting with the tools and communities involved with it.

In this video, which you can watch below, I’m going to walk you through what I call Authority Research. In this step, we’ll find the right people to learn from and how to use their networks to our advantage. You’ll also learn how to uncover the right keywords to help you along your job discovery process.
