Default seeking advise

hope everyone is having a good match season.
i had applied for match this year but its been relatively tough.
I am hoping that i don't have to go in for SOAP.But just in case i have to can anyone let me know certain steps that increase your chances in post match.
And if i don't get matched what will be the best way to improve chances next year as in :
1.research and if this how to look for one
2.observership can we look for paid research or even unpaid for that matter?

Look forward to some positive replies

Hey keep your head up and keep going. With that being said I think it would help people answer your questions with a little more info:
What are your scores like? Do you have an publications? Visa status? Research? What are you applying to?
