If you’re trying to get your first entry level job, that’s not the time to be timid. Take a hint from Sujata Setia, a freelance copywriter/blogger who spammed one employer so hard that it ended up landing her the job in her story at LinkedIn entitled "I Spammed her Inbox. She hired me." Why did it work? She never gave up and dared the employer to contact her to give her a mock assignment. The employer did, she aced the sample, and now she has a job. You can use the same techniques she used to get noticed too.
Get Your Name in Front of the Right People
Be the one hired out of many applicants after a flurry of new grad jobs applications have landed in the hiring manager’s inbox by getting noticed first. Spamming can be effective when looking for a fresh graduate job. You can send multiple job applications or requests for information, at different times. Here’s how to get your name noticed when it comes time to apply:
Multiple Resumes - If you sent it and got no reply, send it again. You can send it as many times as you think it takes to get a response.
Use Different Inboxes - You might see one for Human Resources (HR), another for a hiring manager, or a third on their website. You can send it to all three. It might be you don’t fit the job for the hiring manager, but HR still wants to talk to you. Try the chat feature on the website to ask about the status of your application.
Use Social Media - You can use LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter to send your resume to people who you think might be able to help you connect with someone who is hiring.
Start by joining social media pages like Google+ or Facebook for FirstJob.com to make those connections.
