There were two different ways I was able to achieve interviews that ended up with a job. As they used different tactics, I wanted to share both with you. You can read more details about activities that I employed at my blog www.gregquirk.wordpress.com.
I was able to secure multiple rounds of interviews with a company by following many of the tactics outlined in the Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters book. To start with, I prepared a Coffee Cup Caper, which included a copy of my Guerrilla Resume, a Guerrilla Cover Letter and a StarBuck’s coffee cup. I sent this via FedEx and called the CEO shortly after he received it. While they did not have a specific requirement, he was intrigued and set up an interview for when he returned from his holidays.
