I sent my resume and cover letter to a company and it turns out that my in-laws go to church with the plant manager. I'll be visiting them over the Thanksgiving break and I'm sure we'll be introduced on Sunday. I want to make a good impression but I also don't know how far to push this kind of meeting. Any suggestions?
Back ground: This is a new ethanol plant is south Georgia, they just broke ground a month ago, and it's going to be amazing. This is the stuff from GWB's state of the union...BIG. I'd love to land this one. I can remember doing papers on bio-fuels in the 4th grade!
I've listened to the interview series twice and I'm working on my flash cards. This is not an interview so obviously I won't rattle off all that stuff. I've improved my handshake considerably after that cast....that'll help.
I'm going to carry an envelope with my resume in it and I'd also like to give him a soft close...maybe " I'd like an interview here's why..." Is that too much for such a meeting at church?
Of course as I write this I think..."what a wimp, If you want an interview then close the guy. It's no big deal."
