Has anyone else out there been doing cold calls for jobs?
My situation is up in there air but today I cold-called 11 places, hotel chains mainly to ask if they had any work going.
When I asked the receptionist, it was 50/50 as to whether or not there were jobs going. I was then referred to the Personnel dept for one call and that’s when I started asking to be referred to Personnel.
Of the 11 calls I made today:
….Only 1 had an active vacancy that they were recruiting for, which was a part-time hotel reception position.
What do you think of cold calling for jobs? Is it a bit of a fools errand to do so … or can you really find work this way?
