I've been an avid reader of "Ask The Headhunter" for a number of years. I've even used all the tips and tricks to beat the opposition. However, I've got a really interesting one and I need some advise...I heard about an opportunity with a French technology company that is trying to open an office in my local area. Currently, the company operates in Europe and Asia and doesn't have an office in the United States. I have spoken to everyone in my network and unfortunately, I can't get an inside lead in this company. So I started out as just another fish in the sea of applicants. I submitted my cover letter and resume and sat back to see if I got a response. A week went by and nothing. One of the key criteria for this position was to hire 20 technical people in the first year and another 40 in the second. In looking at the company, I determined that they would need 4 or 5 specific types of people Database Manager, Customer Support, Network Engineers, to name a few. I drafted an e-mail to the original application response address, in which I addressed the above hiring issue. Today I received a reply indicating that they had received my resume along with 700 more.Right now, I feel I'm in a reasonable position in that I've had some dialog with someone in the company. However, I'm not sure what my next step is. I don't want to just sit there and wait like everyone else. Can you suggest a next step?
