I am wondering if it is frowned upon to e-mail companies directly to ask if they have any positions available. I understand that most businesses these days have a "Careers" section, but they typically also have a career advisor / hiring manager type person listed.
Is it poor form to reach out to this person directly, listing your major skills or attaching a resume, and asking if they have anything available in that field?
The company I currently work for hires from within whenever possible before posting to the job sites.
If someone reaches out from outside the company and is fully qualified would they be considered?
Any advice is much appreciated!
