Tracking Down the Hiring Manager

Link visible for attendees

Believe it or not, hiring managers are just as frustrated with HR as the job seekers. This is why they are often open to direct contact from candidates, especially if they are a good fit for the company. However, don’t cut out HR entirely – after all, the hiring manager can’t resurrect you if you didn’t formally and legally apply for the job through the HR department’s set procedures.
