Yesterday I was dropping off a resume at a consulting firm I'm trying to get a job at. When I walked into the reception area there was a man who clearly worked there speaking with the receptionist. While I was waiting for him to finish I noticed that he was carrying an envelope with the name of my potential manager's manager. Figuring I had nothing to lose I asked if he was the senior manager for marketing, turns out I was right. We had a chat about what they were looking for in the candidate and I got to sell him on why I am the best person for the position. I handed him resumes addressed to him and his collegues. Point of the story, before I left for the office I debated wearing a tie and jacket because I was "just dropping of a resume." A.
