Salesforce Career Seekers: The Phone

Are you using it to try and express interest in a position that you applied for?

If not, could you?

Yes, the pick-up rate is a measly 3-5% on a cold call.

That’s OK, you want to leave a message anyway.

Most companies have a call tree to dial by name.

Look up either HR, Talent Acquisition or who you think the hiring manager could be.

Leave a message today, and then follow up again in 2 days, then maybe again 3 days.

Don’t be a pest, but rather professionally persistent.

It could help get your resume moved to the top of the stack.

Above anything else, it can prove to yourself that you’re willing to get a little uncomfortable, as well as, to an employer that you have an elevated interest, and the tenacity to be different.
