This post originally appeared as issue 69 of the Daily Job Hunt email. Sign up for kick-butt career hype in your inbox each morning.
Stop being tentative on your job hunt.
Make it happen. Take charge. Own your day.
Take bold action.
Follow. Up. Repeatedly.
Listen, the job hunt is a sales process, which means after you email your pitch, you want to follow up repeatedly (every couple days until you get a response). This shows a company you are interested, not annoying.
And it can be helpful to use not only email, but LinkedIn and Twitter DM’s.
To build the mindset of a sales professional, check out this article on the Agogic Sequence to following up.
