Cold-calling execs can shorten job search

Classified ads in your local paper and online at sites like CareerBuilder and Monster.com, probably account for less than 20 percent of available job openings. Your immediate network of friends, family, and former work associates will help uncover hidden opportunities. However, without expanding your search by cold-calling companies, you could be seeking a job for a long time.

Identify companies to target and attempt to contact the managers and executives to whom you would report your occupation. Aim for the highest level you can, while avoiding the human resources department. Start with the companies that are less appealing so you can get practice, then go after the better prospects.

The most important aspect of this strategy is that the primary reason for your call is to gain valuable guidance and insight from the senior executive.
