I just found a few positions at a company I want to work for and I even know two people who work there. I was thinking of shooting the two people my resume. Is that what I should do next?
Advice from Career MojoWant the short answer? No! But let me be a little more helpful.
First, never, ever, ever send your resume alone when applying to a job (unless the company limits you to a strict template) or when networking for someone’s help.
Here’s a better way to handle it:
- Apply via the company website
- Write a personalized letter to each of your network contacts,
- Follow up with your contacts seven working days later.
