5 New Creative Ways To Find A Job Faster

In today's post, we will look into 5 new creative ways to help us find a job faster. Let us assume in your job search quest that you have posted to every internet job board out there and every job on #Monster, #CareerBuilder, and #HotJobs. Possibly, also, you have followed up with calls and networked until you are blue in the face. Each weekend you take the newspaper and apply for every job in your field with little to no results.  Well, these are new job search method you have to try out to get a positive result.

#1 Send Half of Your Resume
Find a company you want to work. Write a great cover letter on why you are a good fit, pointing to the enclosed resume. Do not seal the envelope and do not enclose a resume. They will think the resume fell out in the mail. They will call you and engage you in a conversation. The pointer here is to sell yourself shamelessly and proudly.

#2 Write A Prospecting Letter
Make use of the power of direct mail. Locate 5 to 10 companies you will like to work for. Write up a letter to your contact network and ask them if they know anyone who works at any of the companies on your list. When a contact says they know someone on your list, send them your resume and ask them to forward it their contact or ask permission to send it yourself. 

#3 E-Mail Chain Letter
Create a list of say 20 companies you want to work for and send an email to everyone you know to see if they know anyone who works at these companies. Ask them to contact you if they do, so that you can ask for a referral. Finally, ask them to forward your email to 10 more people. However, do not do this if you are currently employed!

#4 Distribute A Booklet
Write a booklet with information relevant to your area of specialization and give it away. Everyone loves free information and this is a great way to demonstrates your expertise. Give the booklet away electronically and advertise it to newsgroups where hiring managers will see it.

#5 Call Human Resources
This may sounds crazy, right? Call the human resources department of the companies where you will like to work. Ask them what outside agency or third-party recruiting firm they use. They will ask you why do you want to know. Tell them that their company is not currently looking for someone with your skill set right now the agency may be dealing with other firms, so you are looking for a recommendation. They may very well ask you for an interview. If not at least you do get a lead. They would love to save the agency fees. Also being recommended gives you special attention. Send them a thank you note.

These are powerful tactics that can give you a better results. Be sure to stay toned for another 5 creative tips.
