Structured Job Search

OK-you have started the process-you sent out (5) resumes yesterday (Monday). Wait until tomorrow (Wednesday-48 hours later)-contact each person by phone. Review the following:

1) Did you receive my resume?

2) Can we set up a time when I can meet with you for (15) minutes to discuss my job search?

3) If it helps the process, volunteer to meet with your network contact early in the morning for
coffee, for lunch, or after normal work hours. Remember, he is doing you a favor-
accommodate his work schedule.

4) Follow up immediately after your phone conversation with an e-mail thanking him for
agreeing to meet with you.

Now, what do you say during this brief meeting.....
