You want to work for an organization, but you can’t seem to find a public job posting. You’re not sure if there’s an opening. You’re not sure if they’ll welcome you. You’re wondering should I apply? If I apply, how should I apply? Is Cover letter more important than a Professional Resume.

First things first…

Should you apply or reach out to an organization when they don’t have a job posting?

Three reasons:

Great organizations are always, combing the world for the greatest talent. They’re always in the process of hiring, whether they have a budget for a new position or don’t have a budget for a new position. They are constantly looking for the greatest resources because they know the greatest resources don’t always come along or are available when they need them.

Companies trade up. If there are ten people in an organization, there’s at least one or two of them the company would be willing to trade out for a better performer. It’s just a simple calculation.

Less competition. There’ll be a lot less competition. If there’s no job posting, it’s a deterrent for well more than 90% of the people. So most of them won’t even try it.

  • Why you’re writing to them - The reason I’m writing to you is because I want to join your company. But you can’t leave them there. You need to give them some context and some rationale as to why you want to work at that organization.
  • Your rationale for wanting to work there - The reasons I want to work here are…based on my research…and then insert your rationale.
  • Home run accomplishment - Tell them about a significant accomplishment you know is going to be enticing and a great match for that company. A particular accomplishment I’m proud of or a significant accomplishment or a major accomplishment is…and then tell them specifically what it is. Pointing them in the direction of more evidence of why you’re a great fit.
  • Welcome the opportunity to speak with them - I’d welcome the opportunity to speak with you…
  • Thank them for their consideration - I want to thank you for your consideration…
