If you’re OK with a cold outreach approach in your job search and don’t know who to turn to within the organization.
One suggestion: Start with someone in Sales (Director of Sales, Sales Enablement, Sales Operations, etc.)
If they’ve come from a Sales background, they understand prospecting and cold outreaches as either they’ve had to do it in prior years or they have a sales team currently doing it.
Therefore, typically (not always) there is a little more understanding, when they receive a cold call or email as they’ve been on the sending end before.
And while they’re probably not the decision maker, there’s a good chance they know who is.
Please be personable, relatable, friendly, and even a little unique, in your messaging.
Speaking of cold, if you’re older than say 35, maybe you’ve heard of the band, Foreigner (80 million albums sold).
Song: Cold as Ice
You’re as cold as ice
You’re willing to sacrifice our love
You never take advice
Someday you’ll pay the price, I know
