Dear Experts, There is a position available at a company I'd like to work for. I recently found the profile of an HR manager at the same company. What is the best way to contact this person? I tried sending an inmail to connect, but it expired. Is calling and introducing myself wise? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question:@jtodonnellQ#169 If brave, type letter to CEO & hand deliver it. Tell her/him why you LOVE company in detail & ask for info interview. @DebraWheatmanQ#169 Try sending a handwritten note. With with the speed of online delivery people have forgotten the impact of a letter. @juliaericksonQ#169 Since no resp to inmail, call may not be taken; find 3rd degree contact to person, ask 4 intro thru ntwk. @gradversityQ#169 If you a number, try calling them. If not, add them to your LinkedIn contact list and start the conversation that way. @ValueIntoWordsQ#169 Research/build relationships w/ company players via LinkedIn, Twitter, ZoomInfo, Spoke, Jigsaw. @beneubanksQ#169 Don't call HR manager unless you want an HR job.
