Keeping Warm Contacts to get Referrals for Jobs

A person can approach the people from the list of warm contacts that would be able to give him the contacts of those persons whom the person can depend to collect necessary information with respect to the job he is searching for. The warm contact contains people whom we know very well and those whom we may not know. In some cases it is difficult to get any kind of information from people who are in the warm contact whom we may not know at all. Some may even be hesitant to give their contacts. Hence a situation arises where a person is unable to use his own set of connections for collecting information regarding the various job opportunities. But a person can easily utilize his set of connections for collecting information which he requires. It is very important that a person must always be in touch with people in his warm contacts. Once in a while the person can forward notes or greetings to such people. They can even be requested for a lunch or dinner. They could also be helped in their business or any other work they are doing. Thus a person can promote his relationship with such people in his the warm contacts by making them feel his presence in one way or the other. Hence these people would be able to give the person the information or the list of warm contacts of people they have with them which could really be beneficial to him in many ways.

It would be improper for a person to contact a person in the warm contact by simply calling them and trying to get the required information. He must be very polite and humble. It is always advisable that if such people are called for a dinner or if a greeting is sent to them then it would make them feel good about such a person. And later when he asks them about the information he would like to have from them, they would readily give him the information he requires.  Never under estimate others. It is because even small information which is received from his warm contact would be very precious. Therefore what is required is that the person must listen to them very carefully and act accordingly. Some times such information may prove to be very useful. Politeness and patience both are required in such a situation. People from the warm contact may even tell the way he has to behave in order to impress the persons to who they are sending him. An overall opinion about the type of job opportunity which is suitable for him or that he must apply for is advised by them. They can even help him in searching job opportunities available according to his excellence and qualifications.

If a person has an inclination towards a particular area of job then he must confirm himself that the maximum information is obtained from the warm contacts regarding that area. The most important thing to be noted is that the warm contacts should not be cut in between their talk of the subject related to the job which the person is interested in. He must be very polite and at the same time be patient in hearing what their warm contact want to convey them. Never matter even if little information they have with regard to his interested area. If no referrals are given then it would be better if a copy of the resume of the person is handed over to them and asked if they find any body that can have information regarding his interested area then he may kindly be contacted. It is better to have at least two referrals from the warm contacts. It is because if one fails to give information then the second referral can be approached. Asking for more than two referrals can make the warm contact feel that he is being more depended on. When the referrals are obtained the person must approach or contact these referrals at the earliest.
