In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
One of the best ways to get what you want is to ask Allah sincerely, and often. Allah says, “And your Lord says, "Call upon Me; I will respond to you." Indeed, those who disdain My worship will enter Hell [rendered] contemptible.” [40:60] Never despair when you don’t immediately get what you want. Allah says, “And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me – indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided.” [2:186] Furthermore, Allah says, “Is He [not best] who responds to the desperate one when he calls upon Him and removes evil and makes you inheritors of the earth? Is there a deity with Allah? Little do you remember.” [27:62]
In addition to calling on Allah, it is important to put your best effort in. You must work hard every day to search for a job by going to interviews and applying for different positions. Allah does not only want us to make dua [supplication] and then wait around for some miracle to occur. Rather, we should put our trust in Allah but also work hard by using the means that Allah has set up for us in this world. This was the way of all the prophets, who worked hard and put in their full effort whenever doing things.
Only Allah knows best.
