I spent some years obtaining a good CV. Finished a bachelor without ever failing a subject, good grades, went international (I'm European) to obtain a good master degree and international experience, internships, languages...
That ends up with now having a pretty decent CV, not a one in a thousand, but let’s say among the 10% best candidates with my profile.
Now, looking at the job market, I feel I am unable to make use of this better CV than an average bachelor student who obtained the bachelor degree in 5-6 years by failing some subjects (average in my university).
My intentions are, like most people, to obtain a good job (interesting + well paid).
Question: What would be the best way to use a good CV to obtain a good job? Or it would make more sense to just go on a regular job and try to show the skills once inside?
I'm on the data science field so it is quite easy to find a regular job, since it’s a popular field.
Edit: How interesting a job is, is a personal matter, but how well paid is, is completely objective. I have met colleagues during my internships that earnt like 5 times more with low experience than others with 20 years of experience. My concerns relate to the fact that I see a lot of randomness involved in the job market in this sense and my instincts tell me that a good candidature should help in obtaining a better paid-renowned position. (Always keeping the constraint that one must be interested in the job). The problem is that the only strategy to find those positions is trial and error, and of course this strategy is not really attractive so the question would relate to any advice in performing this finding.
I can't make the question more specific as I feel a lot of people can go through this situation, this post has already had some useful answers though.
