don't stalk the hiring manager

Don't cross the line from enthusiastic job-seeker to irritating stalker. Over at U.S. News & World Report today, I talk about how to navigate the line. Please check it out, comment, etc.!

(After I wrote this, I saw that the awesome Rachel over at I Hate HR is getting bothered by this too. Check out hers as well.)

This posting made me laugh out loud because lots of job-hunting advice books always stress to circumvent HR and to try and get in touch directly with the hiring manager! Now I don't know what to believe :-)

I agree with anonymous. But I think the key is to not lie. You can try to get to talk with the person directly without lying about why you are calling. I think. Maybe.
