A Fast Way to Land a Job

By Marty Nemko

Many job seekers burn out before landing a job. They need an approach that works fast.
Here's one:

What can you do today?
Identify 10 fast-growing companies-perhaps those with large ads in the Sunday Register's employment section. Use the company's website and the search engine to learn about the company and its CEO. For any companies that you might like to work for, FedEx a letter to the CEO saying that having learned about the CEO and the company, you'd love to work there. Explain what you bring to the table. You might try this line: "Someone must have given you your first break. I'm looking for someone to give me mine." Perhaps even offer to volunteer for a day as a tryout. Odds are good that one of the companies will offer you a job.
