Hi MT'ers! I'd appreciate any advice on this situation. My question is would you ever "cold-call" someone who works at a company you would love to work for but doesn't have any job openings (that you're aware of) in your area of expertise?
Here's some background... I have recently discovered an organization I would love to work for. However, on their website there aren't any openings listed in my area. They do, however, provide a complete staff listing with the ability to contact anyone individually. I found the person who works in the department I'm interested in and covers the geographica area where I live.
Would it be inappropriate to send him an email introducing myself and expressing my enthusiasm about working for the organization an attempt to build a relationship from there?
Thanks so much for your input!
