Cold visits

Anyone have any experience with visiting a company unannounced? I think I might try it, but frankly, I'm terrified. Anyone have any stories of doing this?

Like Evan said, sometimes it is easier to get the companies address, so It would not hurt to go in, they might even like the fact that you are showing initiative by going in.

Go for it! I do it quite often. The opportunity comes up you must do it! They are only people they won't bite!

Use the bad things to your advantage

Hi guys,

Just wanted to share with you what happened to me. I am new in New York. I have been working in Asia for 10 years of my life. Have had good paying solid jobs but when I came to New York, I started from scratch. I graduated Major in Information Technology, but I havent used my skills because the job opportunities that came back then were call center jobs. So in NY, I got accepted for a job of IT Helpdesk Admin. I am very grateful that my boss took me in and trusted me that I can do my job even though I didnt have experience. The only bad thing is, my team is messy. The guys I am working with are very lazy. They will try as much as they can to dodge jobs that are given to them. But even though it is challenging, it benefited me in many ways. I had to do initiative to learn things on my own and do the job myself because I genuinely love to help people. And because of this, I have become a more experienced IT person. One thing though, being that this Was an entry level job for me, I was paid like a newly grad college. Anyways, 2 years now and I decided I nEed to find another firm that knows how to value me, and will pay me market value. Here I am, going to start my ne job soon, and got $14k more or what Im getting plus bonus. The bad situation I was in my team was kinda useful. It paved the wah for me to now find a better opportunity. Never stop, try harder, and reach for your goals and dreams, and everything will fall in its place in the right time :) #survivor #gotanewjob #blessed #hardworker #initiative #knowyourworth #newjob
