The Forgotten Job Search Strategy

By Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter reminds you of this wall but forgotten job search strategy, particularly if you are in sales.

Stupid Interview Mistakes: Overthinking Your Resume

The strategy is START KNOCKING DOWN DOORS, DAMN IT!

Don’t just sit behind LinkedIn.  Don’t just sit behind your computer screen.  Call people.  Reach out to them!  Don’t just simply sit back passively and apply to jobs to applicant tracking systems.

You may leave a voicemail message for them.  You may leave for messages for them.  The fact of the matter is, particularly if you are in sales, is the single best representation of your persistence and determination that is going to attract you to employers.

In a lot of other fields, if you wait for the applicant tracking system to refer you to the hiring manager for them to see your resume and not get weeded out by it, you are making a huge mistake.

Start banging on doors and demanding to be seen.  Not rudely. Not saying things like, “YOU MUST SEE ME!  YOU MUST INTERVIEW ME!”  Make your presence felt.
