I just submitted a job application and won’t you know it, I goofed up. I did a bit of digging and figured out the name of the hiring manager. But the job posting on LinkedIn didn’t have the hiring manager’s name or title. In various drafts, I had the name in but I finally took it out at the end just in case I was wrong. So I used the dreaded “Dear Hiring Manager”.
After I submitted it on the company’s website, I noticed who the job reported to. It didn’t have the name but her title. Of course, the title was for that person’s name that I had. I had even gone on her LinkedIn. What ticked me off was that I went through the posting a few times but missed this. I’m just kicking myself now.
The job is at one of my target companies but it’s only a 1 year contract. And the salary is a lot lower than what I used to make. But I need to get my foot in the door.
