Is cold calling prospective employers looking for work still effective in 2019?

Applying for jobs online is indeed a great method in searching for suitable employment. But, does cold calling businesses to market and promote yourself for any potential employment still a good way to find a job?

It most certainly is an effective way to find a job that’s suitable and right for you.

If you are comfortable cold calling businesses, then you can target potential employers in areas that are close to where you reside, and whose line of work and business direction/products and services closely aligned with the types of companies you have worked for in the past.

By cold calling a business in a field that you have worked it, it may capture their interest because you have an understanding of their industry.
