I found a job online that I am really interested in at a large company. I tailored my resume and wrote a customized cover letter, and went through the online application system. Even though my skills match very well, I fear getting stuck in the resume black hole.
Online, through a LinkedIn search, I found someone in the very specific department the job is in. My question to all of you out there is would it be too aggressive to try and connect with this person? I'm new to the work world and don't have a ton of connections, and this job is a relocation job. Would it come off desperate or annoying, or could it be the boost I need to actually get a human to look at my resume, show I want the job, and get an interview?
Also, to make this more fun, what's the craziest thing you've done to get a job?
