This question or other forms of it come into many conversations about job search and networking activities.
"Do I have to...?" and "I don't wanna ..." are then followed by:
- talk to people I don't know (networking).
- write a cover letter.
- send a thank you note.
- research a company or my interviewer.
You don't have to. But, if you don't, the person who did will get the interview and/or job offer.
We all learn from each other. I invite you to share your stories.
What part of the job search did you dislike/avoid the most and how did you overcome that reluctance? What didn't you want to do? Include your comments through the link below.
