I've been looking around for a new job for a while and not much is coming up to apply for so I'm thinking about a speculative approach to some agencies I'd like to work for.

Has anyone else done this before? If so I'd welcome any advice on what type of approach you took.

    Baaa!

    Should be the same process as finding new client work.

    1 Write down a list of agencies you'd like to work for.
    2 Find out if you know anyone who works there or can put you in touch with the right people (use LinkedIn?).
    3 Drop that person an informal message to find out if they have vacancies.
    4 ...
    5 Win.

    For me, Freelancing onsite has been the most effective way of getting job offers. Perhaps this is something to consider?

    You'd think it was that straight forward Sub. I work in a pretty small sector where all agencies know each other - I'm just thinking about sensitivities surrounding this type of approach innit.

    Not interested in freelancing - I did it for 5 years and hated it.
