I always fantasized working for a particular company because of their leadership in the market and the projects they implement as it relates my area of knowledge. However, this company hasn't advertised or even done any job postings recently. So my gut tells me to go their HR office and show them my resume in the hope that they will call me when a need arises.

I don't know if there is a need now, but is it possible or a good move to visit their HR office? I honestly need advice here.

  • "...but this company didn't advertise or even do Job postings..." Ever? Or just not recently?

  • @BSMP I meant recently, which means their job security is better I think.

  • An additional note on my edit: I did see if I could find some other relevant tags since two of them don't really apply but I couldn't find any.

You are unlikely to be able to talk to HR in a business of any signifcant size.

Companies generally don't take walk in visitors, and you will be asked to leave your documents at reception. These documents may or may not be forwarded to HR.

I think this company is most likely hiring from a group you are not part of, and your chances getting on there are vanishingly small.


HR is the wrong place to send anything unsolicited. In order to get hired, you need to talk to an actual "hiring manager". So, the first thing is to get contact information of such people and you want to talk to multiple people. Once you have their information, sending a resume is the wrong first move. You want to be asking questions about what they are doing, what problems they are facing and solving, and what skills they are looking for at this time. The point is to be "networking" with them first, not asking them for a job. You might find that you need to learn new skills before you would be a good candidate for them.


There is no need of visiting its HR office and it's not a good move

Probably your best approach to what you want, is sending to the company an email explaining your interest on working there, i would evade sending your CV in this first contact, you should ask first and see if they're interested too.
