GHM Client, Larry Rotheiser, talks on Channel Two News Chicago.
When people are pressing to get hired because they are out of work, hiring managers recognize this sense of urgency. That puts you at a competitive disadvantage when competing against an employed person. If you were employed and interviewed for a job where the ‘fit’ was not right, you would go back to work the next day. Take that attitude when you are job searching whether you are employed or unemployed.
You can call a prospective employer as many times as you’d like in order to connect, but only leave one voice mail message a week. The best time to call someone would be early in the morning or after 5pm. They’re most likely to pick up the phone themselves outside of normal business hours.
