Job Seekers: You’re Not Bothering Anyone

There is a huge gap between endlessly bugging someone who is unresponsive or politely reaching out to potentially set up a call or an informal meeting.

Networking is one of the best ways to get your foot in the door at a company and you should feel ZERO GUILT about connecting with someone or sending them a message right here on jobcase.

People waste plenty of time during the day so don’t feel like your 2-3 sentence email is a big disruption. It’s not.

Worst case? They ignore or delete your message. No big deal.

Connect with or email 10 different people a day and folks will start to respond. You never know where one conversation can lead, so don’t be shy or hesitant.

There are many people out there who are willing to help you…they just need to be asked.
