Yep I’ve used this and for the job. Find out who the hiring manager is by contacting the recruiter (there’s usually a name on there of who to contact), set up a coffee with the hiring manager and say you want to learn more about the role (but go prepared as to why you’re interested etc coz they might ask). Then just have a chit chat with them and at the end say you’re going to apply. It goes a long way and shows you are super proactive. Treat it like an informal interview. Worked for me:)

Lately I’ve been trying to quit consulting and take up a less intense job for the period while my kids are very young so I don’t miss out on their early years.

But I have a hard time converting any of my applications to such roles. I think my resume doesn’t make it past hr. And I have a hard time locating the hiring manager. Any tips?
