Dear Experts, I've been trying to get in touch with a hiring manager for three weeks now. Till this point, I've sent two e-mails. Therefore, I don't believe I've been annoying or pushy so it may be time to try calling her. I have the phone number to reach this particular hiring manager but want to make sure I know how to handle leaving a voicemail if she doesn't pick up. Do you have any advice on this matter so I can ensure I put myself in a good position to get a phone call back? Thank you!
