Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love
We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.
But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.
48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.
If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.
I am trying to get back in the workforce after being a stay-at-home Dad for 3 1/2 years. I have my resume together with the job titles I'd like to have (Systems Analyst / other tech jobs). I am trying to follow Dan's process from the 48 Days book, where I send introductory letters this week, send resumes and cover letters next week, and call the week after that.
I've targeted local companies I'd like to work for. Some are medium to large companies that probably have a handful of hiring managers that could hire me. How do I find out their names?
I don't think a city directory will have a full company organization chart. Same for a national business search engine. I can call the company receptionist but I don't exactly know to ask for the names of all the hiring managers that hire Systems Analysts.
I would use LinkedIn to find these names. I use it a lot to find people and research companies.
LinkedIn is a good call, Tom. As well, your local Chamber of Commerce may be able to help. Be aware that sometimes chamber information can be a bit out of date.
If it were me, I'd call the company(s) and ask the receptionist. It's a quick and extremely accurate approach.
