For a professional job it is not appropriate to deliver a resume by hand, and it is highly unlikely you would ever make contact with the hiring manager...Update time.
Got a couple resumes cooking and working on cover letters. LinkedIn is go as well.
Really enjoyed resting, spending time with the family and getting spring yard work started without my phone going off every two minutes.
I've found a couple of leads on items of interest.
Question, is it considered inappropriate in today's tech driven world to hand deliver resumes? It's been a decade since I went on an interview. I feel, as well as others around me, that I sell myself better than any resume I could cook up. Not to sound cocky or anything... I'm one of those strange introvert people persons who can strike up conversation with anyone about nothing. I mean, if *I* was looking for good people, I'm considering the person who took the time to stand before me first. But I'm not sure if that's still how the world works.
Also, was working my way through What Color Is Your Parachute. Sadly, the author passed away yesterday.
Professional jobs often get hundreds if not thousands of applicants in some places, computers scan resumes submitted electronically for key words and produce a short.ist of possible matches that Hr then further reduces to a pool that is manageable to interview. To get out of that loop because you don't have the right keywords, credentials, experience or whatever they are looking for (i.e. Breaking into a new field) you need a referral, or a recruiter.
