Excellent post! Its uncomfortable at first, but it's a great experience. Knowing the right people can get you in front of a recruiter. Also, use people in the network you already have! Check LinkedIn, I have reached out to people who graduated from the same University to get introductions to hiring managers at the companies they work for in the past.

I totally agree, it is uncomfortable, and i come up with every reason not to do it. Like this blog post. I came up with 5 reasons every hour why this isnt going to be of any value to anyone.

But sometimes, like an ice cold shower in the morning, you have to lean into the uncomfortable and great things come of it.

Thank you for your kind words and sharing your approach on Linkedin, i know someone will take your advice and implement it.
