- Hi I am Ms. nobody, calling  to follow up on my resume with Mr./Ms. somebody.
- Sure let me connect you
-This is Mr./Ms. somebody's voice-male. Please leave a message!

And I know this is a dead end...He is not going to return my call but I won't give up. That's a Law of Seed :D

I must admit the hardest part of finding job is "the following up" section. You are as a total stranger calling to another stranger to talk about your resume. You don't want to look annoying or desperate. A friend of mine pushed me to follow up my resume few days ago which totally put me out of my comfort zone. But that's a good sign. If you are out of your comfort zone it means you are making progress. It shows something has changed for you. I need to practice being out of my cosy zone. I didn't realize how much I made myself comfortable at home during last two years of long distance study. Things are about to change...

You'll get there with this determination :)

Bonjour Hiva,

Glad to hear that. Life means stress but stress is good for you, it is the essential of life (unless you are a civil servant, sure).

If you are unsure how to proceed, just buy a good book on the subject. There are mistakes to be avoided.

Hi George,

Thanks, I borrowed some books from the library. very useful. I do notice if they say "don't call" I won't.
wish me luck
