  2. Go to TheVoiceofJobSeekers.com, press the “Send Voicemail” button on the right side of your screen and leave a message
  3. Send email feedback to mark@thevoiceofjobseekers.com

Cold-Calling as a Job Search Tool

The Voice of Job Seekers - Unemployed, Underemployed, Unappreciated Job Seekers Welcomed!

Cold-calling sounds intimidating and most shy away from it but with the holidays coming up, it could be a passive strategy that Kimberly Robb Baker can work for you. There are few people in the office, who will have more time to open mail and actually read it (Mmmmm…)! In this day and age, you could stand out because people are still sending resumes instead of a brief letter as a tease to become interested in you.

Have you tried cold-calling before? Love to hear what you think! Here are a few ways you can provide feedback:

  1. Call and leave a voicemail at 708-365-9822
  2. Go to TheVoiceofJobSeekers.com, press the “Send Voicemail” button on the right side of your screen and leave a message
  3. Send email feedback to mark@thevoiceofjobseekers.com
