Ok. Real quick. I applied to a yob last week. One that I think I’m really qualified for. Submitted my resume. I even asked an ex colleague to forward my resume to the hiring manager. He did.
And I’ve still heard nothing.
Then I noticed that LinkedIn sometimes gives the name of the person who posted the job opportunity.
So I figured out what her email address would be and on Wednesday I emailed her a “Hey, hi. I applied last week. I think I’m perfect for this job she here’s why” email.
Well, on Friday I heard back and we have an interview set up for next week.
Bonus round: I applied for a job at a different company in EARLY February. A friend networked into the company and I heard that I was being passed on for whatever reason.
Today, April 8th, I get an email from that company asking to set up an interview.
Job searching is kooky. I just never know.
