Job Search – “Old School” Style!

Is it time to go “Old School” with your job search? Is all of the technology working? The technology today can seem to make it a lot harder than it used to be – back in the “old days” when we didn’t have all of these social network sites, Monster, LinkedIN, Zip Recruiter, etc.

Sometimes you just have to go “old school” to get the job done. Why? Because it works every time it’s tried, that’s why!

What I want you do to is pick the company you want to work for, let’s call it a “dream company” or “dream position” and then I want you to find out the person you should speak to within this company. For instance; sales manager, if you’re in sales; CFO, if you’re in accounting, and so on.

After you have the company, and you know the person you should speak to, I want you to visit this company in person – just like the old days – and ask to speak to this person and if they’re not there, leave your resume or business card with the receptionist (gatekeeper).

The key here is you want to put a face to your resume. Companies hire people they like, so when you visit this company be nice and “likable”

This works, I know this is “old school” but sometimes you have to go door-to-door and do it the “old school” way! I hope this helps.

Good luck to you!
