Don't be the Annoying Orange (5 tips to help)...

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:

  1. Be Professional
  2. Don't be overwhelming
  3. Ask when is a good day and time to follow-up with them (get permission to call them back)
  4. Establish a partnership with them
  5. 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.

Tim - just go on Youtube and type in the Annoying orange.    He is a Youtube sensation (my kids love him)
