With all the inherent frustration and rejection, many jobseekers burn out before landing a job. They need an approach that works fast. Here’s one:
Identify ten fast-growing companies – perhaps those with large employment ads in the Sunday newspaper. Use the company’s website and the Google.com search engine to learn about the company and its CEO. For any companies that you might like to work for, FedEx a letter to the CEO saying that having learned about him or her and the company, you’d love to work there. Explain what you bring to the table. You might try this line: "Someone must have given you your first break. I’m looking for someone to give me mine." Perhaps even offer to volunteer for a day as a tryout. Odds are good that one of the companies will offer you a job.
