Send Half of Your Resume

Write A Prospecting Letter

Make use of the power of direct mail. Identify 5-10companies and write a letter to yourcontact network asking them if they know anyone who works at any of the companies onyour list. If they do, send them your resume and ask them to forward it to their contact orask for permission to send it yourself. This will place you at an advantage over unadvertisedpositions in the companies.

Email Chain Letter

Create a list of 20 companies you want to work for and send an email to all your contacts to see if they know anyone who works at any of these companies.
