Career Advice

Former recruitment agency experts answer employment questions, candidly suggesting how to negotiate your salary, find a really good job, handle phone interviews, and more.

Sage advice like this is priceless.

Question: If the job ad says not to call, should I call anyway? Is it ok to call after I send in my résume, or should I never call?

If an ad says "no calls please" then this usually means the employer doesn’t have the resources to answer every call about a position. Follow-ups, thank yous, or calls for general information are not considered urgent and the employer is not going to hire additional human resources people just to handle such calls.

Job seeker's should instead research corporate Web sites to obtain job postings, which typically have enough information to give a good overview of the position.

Many people want to call just to get their foot in the door, believing that recruiters will remember them better when sorting through resumes. This is not likely to help much if at all – interviews are given only to those that have and present their skills best for the position.
