It’s well known in the career management space that many networkers and job seekers are afraid to pick up the phone and call potential decision-makers.  They believe their nervousness will show up in the quality of their voice.  Or maybe they’re afraid of stumbling over their own words during the conversation.

But let’s think about this for a minute.  Do you really mean to tell me that you don’t want to call someone?   Someone who could be the answer to your job search problems?  Someone who could pave the way for an interview?  Why not?  If you’re not willing to call someone who might be able to help you, then you absolutely need to get some personal coaching for your phone-o-phobia.  If you can’t get this corrected, a key channel of communications is cut off for you — and in the thick of a job search, that’s a clear invitation for failure.
