- Make a list of companies you want to reach out to. You should ideally aim for a profile (like Software Engineer), and then reach out to the companies that are known to be the best in that profile. For instance, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, etc., are well-known companies for Software Engineers.
- Find the profile of their respective recruiters via LinkedIn. This is easy. LinkedIn allows you to do a search by profession and company. Use that. You can alternatively do a Google search.
- Find the careers email address of these companies. This is available on their website.
- Drop your resume to both, the recruiter as well as the careers email. Write a polite and a simple message, expressing your intent.
