Find a Job with a Small Business in a Big City

-

Find a job with a small business in a big city entails more work than just sending out resumes and wait for someone to call you back. It is best to decide which businesses you desire to work for. Then find out who is the hiring manager for each one so you can make a pitch for a job to him/her. Think of the initial interaction as the beginning of a relationship. Figure a reason to contact the person(s) again in the future in case they don’t have a role for you. I haven’t and will not use the word “position” in this article in reference to a job because small business owners want employees who can think outside of the box. Moreover, they want people willing to do other tasks to help the business meet its goals. [1 – 2]

I have only lived in a big city during my whole life. I don’t know how individuals in rural areas figure out ways to land a job with a small business. If a person don’t own a car, then the person may need to walk to go door-to-door and make their pitches to hiring managers. To avoid walking in inclement weather, they need to find alternative ways to communicate to potential employers.

I presume rural areas don’t have a plethora of buses to run on routes as part of the public transportation. It is possible that buses only run during the night; thus, making it inconvenient to go to certain locations to look for a job.

If you live in a big city and don’t own a car, figure out which buses you won’t mind taking and find out the length of time for you to get to your possible destination if you have a job. Then it would be wise to do what I said earlier, decide which small businesses to make pitches to. Most likely people will pick business that aren’t far away from the chosen bus routes.

I’ve left some other important ideas to implement on your job search from an article I found very useful. You can locate it at the URL that is listed as #1 of the references typed at the bottom of this article.
