You don’t know how to apply to jobs in today’s world

Hi there. Are you fresh out of college? Or maybe just bored of that job you took because your parents suggested? Or maybe that job you took was not what it seemed when you applied?

Reaching out to companies and start-ups is a way out for a lot of these people. But maybe. Just maybe having a great CV and using it to leverage attention isn’t such a great idea anymore.

Most of these companies don’t even check their mail. You probably end up in the spam folder.

Let’s be honest.

A piece of paper that someone got from school/college does not predict his or hers future. It is simply a record of the past. And more often it does not show that persons intent. Nor his/hers passion. So why bother. Why waste your energy.

Internet being the great equalizer has given us a new opportunity. Direct message. The kids call it the DMs. They are on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. This lets anyone reach out to anyone. I could send a message to Elon Musk right now. Asking if he like pineapple on his pizza. And he would actually get it. He may even read it. Unless he blocks me 🙁 first…

So I want you all to DM all the companies and CEOs and HR guys. In companies you want work in. Or maybe just learn from these leader. Start a conversation of what you can do for them.
