The old resume taped to box of Dunkin Donuts trick
I found the perfect position in affiliate marketing here in the Clearwater, Fla. area this week and applied through Monster.com. I didn't hear back right away so I sent a message through the contact us page on their site. Then I sent a LinkedIn message to connect with the owner of the company.
And then it came to me. I had to shamelessly bribe them. So I delivered a box of a dozen glazed Dunkin Donuts to their office and taped my resume to the top. The CEO's Executive Asst. took the resume and thanked me for the donuts. She promised to hand deliver the resume to the boss.
Now I'm sitting back, waiting for the phone to ring.
