I feel like I may be verging on harassing a potential lead (the chain of previous correspondence below). I have since completed a benchmark, professional qualification which strengthens me as a candidate; potentially ticking at least one box on the checklist.
Should I update this Head, or would I be in fact annoying/harrasing him, and sabotaging my chances at present, if indeed any? Previous opinion was this was polite rejection, along the lines of 'not interested, go away and leave me alone'.
I speculatively cold called several companies Dec last year and got through to the head decision maker, who asked me to send my cv and a week later sent this follow up (no interview, and I am a mature entry level candidate who re-trained last year seeking to gain experience).
Hello, I sent a speculative enquiry (below)last week regarding an unpaid position. I wonder if you had a chance to look over my details. Please do advise me of your decision. Thanks
Hi Sally . Unfortunately we do not have any suitable openings at the current time. I will definitely keep your cv under reference for suitable junior roles in the near future. Best, Steve
My friend told me it is a good idea to check in with potential leads every 3-4 months, in the vein of 'Hello, I'm here and still interested. Please keep me in mind'.
This is what happened mid Feb
Hi Steve. I’m wondering, any Unpaid Junior roles? Anything I can do to better my chances? Best Sally
We really don’t have any positions at the moment Sally, although I definitely admire your energy. If anything suitable comes along I will certainly be in touch. Best,Steve
I really hope so and look forward to it. Because I have research that I would like to show you then. Best wishes Steve Sally
