>>2962577 (OP) do it dude, thats how i got my first job. I applied online and nothing. I pestered managers and multiple stores, got a few interviews and eventually a job a week later. People like looking at the people they hire, especially for casual jobs.
>>2962577 (OP) in 2017 this means to set up meetings over coffee/informational interviews with people in the industry you want to work in. this is how you get personal referrals to companies which is what people mean by not applying online.
if you are applying online to stuff, you also need to reach out directly to recruiters or people that work at those companies through linkedin since online job applications are black holes mostly
>>2962577 (OP) >oh you're looking for a job? go talk to jeff, he'll hook you up. your dad should insist you go to church or join the masons or some kind of social group. have you gone outside recently? any good job requires having connection. there's like five 150K a year jobs in my industry i would love to have but i don't know the right people.
>>2962784 This is the best advice you'll ever get for applying for a job. HR shoots down resumes, and only forwards ones they see as good. (Coincidentally, they're often Chad and Stacy resumes). At the end of the day, the hiring manager hires the best person for the job, and the best way to get through HR is to go around HR.
The real question is, should I even include my worthless university degree on my resume or should I just leave it out with the possibility of them asking why there is such a huge gap in my work history.
>>2962577 (OP) protip: prove you're an alpha millenial by calling ahead of time. Call the business, ask if they are hiring and what positions might be open. If they aren't hiring, put them on your second string list.
If they are hiring, chances that the person talking on the phone is the person you will meet is nill. On the phone, you'll get an impression about the company and get a little familiarity and if you say anything awkward it won't matter. When you walk into the business in person, the manager or HR director you talk to will be more impressed by your casual attitude and your familiarity with the company already.
