"Guerrilla," not "Gorilla"


Here's an article that suggests you "go guerrilla" in your job search. Some good ideas--use the phone, rather than emailing; seek out companies rather than individual jobs; stay current on the news about those companies, perhaps even forwarding a clipping to a prospective employer.

There's a book recommended, Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters (Amazon link here--I'm not endorsing it, but it does get an average 4.77 stars out of 5 (339 reviews).

The only suggestion I don't like (and at least one reviewer on Amazon didn't like): sending a coffee mug along with your resume and cover letter. If I got a coffee mug from someone seeking a job, that would put him or her on my "definitely a nut job" list.
