Navigating Through Gatekeepers

Since my client’s coaching session yesterday was focused around getting past gatekeepers, the article at today was very timely.

Gregory Pankow, Candidate Development Project Manager at RW Stearns, Inc. wrote an insightful article and provided an extensive Guide to Using Voicemail to Circumvent Gatekeepers as a downloadable file.

While this is written for the recruiter audience, it can also benefit the job seeker. Since the potential to thoroughly ruin your chances does exist when you try to beat the system, use these strategies discriminately. It is ALWAYS most beneficial to try networking your way in the door first, befriending the gatekeeper second, and employing stealth tactics as a last resort!
