This morning as I was getting ready for work I watched a Dr. Phil rerun, which happened to be about job hunting.
Well I heard some advice that I couldn’t help but think of as being outdated.
Here’s what this expert on Dr. Phil said (in so many words) (he had bad looking teeth by the way):
“Only 5% of jobs are found on the internet. Most jobs are found by walking into a place of potential employment and telling them you are looking for a job.”
This may work in some fields, but I can only imagine the reaction I would get and I’m certain security would be called on me. I think I would terrify a people if I did that.
This attempt at finding a job reminds me of this scene from a movie. You remember this from Kramer vs. Kramer? Dustin Hoffman’s character shows up at an office Christmas party and refuses to leave without a job. Has this ever worked for anyone?
This is a situation where I think I would end up arrested.
So my question is –
Have you ever walked into a company to ask for a job? Did it work?
