Are you a Job Seeker? Are you in Sales? Are you trying to get someone’s attention? Don’t be the Annoying Orange. If you are calling a Hiring Manager or Recruiter: Have a good reason to contact them, not “just to check in.”
5 Tips to help you not become the Annoying Orange:
- Be Professional
- Don’t be overwhelming
- Ask when is a good day and time to follow-up with them (get permission to call them back)
- Establish a partnership with them
- Help them with their pain. Don’t be the pain.
Your goal should be to establish a partnership with them, not to anger, annoy, harass or make them upset. It is a process, they will not be your best friend overnight.
