Practical Advice – Surfacing Interviews

Linda,

If you’re in a job search mode, and trying to assess whether your resume is up to ‘par’, try this approach:

1. Get a hold of the FENG SF Chapter Listing
2. Look for ‘alumni’ at companies where you’d like to work, or like to get an informational interview
3. Send an email to the alumni, asking them to give you feedback on your resume.

Make it clear your not asking them for a job, you’re asking for their advice and counsel.

At a minimum, this should help you fine-tune your resume, and maybe help get you infront of some hiring managers.
