Cold Calling- FAQ & A

I really hate cold calling and I just can’t do it, so do you have any hints for me so I don’t miss out on unadvertised jobs?

Answer: Cold calling can be discouraging & that’s why many don’t like it. It can be very rewarding due to very little competition. In order not to miss out on unadvertised jobs/ hidden job market completely,  you should at least network, by letting as many people as you can know that you are looking for a job, even if they are in a different field or industry. Contact & talk to previous employers, associates, customers, suppliers, other parents, neighbors, people in clubs you belong to …. etc. Also check job openings posted on websites of companies that interest you.  Also, check the links on those websites, as they are usually related.
