Kristine believes cold calling companies to set up informational interviews are a good way to get your foot in the door. Julia, however, believes there are more personal ways to makes connections than cold calling.
To get a third opinion, we play an interview clip with Geneviève Tilden.
Kristine met with Geneviève Tilden, a Masters communication studies candidate at Carleton University, at the IABC After Graduation event in March. We play a short clip of an interview with Geneviève and her advice on how to cold call companies.
So the debate continues. Would you cold call a company for the purpose of trying to get a job?
