#JobTips Here is a little trick for low/no exp job seekers. When you are applying for a job, go to the location that offers the job with a resume or summary of skills and a cover letter. Ask the front person of the general manager is in the store ar that time. Of they are not, you find out when they will be there, leave, and come back at that time. You NEED the manager to be there. Now full out the application and have the manager paged. When the manager comes up hand them your resume, skills, and cover letter (and application if it wasn't done on computer). Shake their hand, introduce yourself, and say " Thank you coming out to meet me, I am sure you are busy. I just wanted to make sure that my information made it into the right hands as I am very interested in working with company name. " Wait for a response, many times, i smaller stores and restaurants you will be given an interview on the spot. If not thank them for their time and consideration and let them know you hope to hear from them in the near future. ****This only works for entry level positions, mom and pop stores, restaurants, and small general retail stores (like dollar general and family dollar, some grocery chains, gas stations, etc.) Good luck out there!!
