I am actively searching for work and I noticed that alot of companies I apply to online send an automatic notification that says that they will contact YOU if they are interested and NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE, yet articles are stating that new grads need to be more active in their job searches this day in age and that simply applying online is not suffice and that you should follow up with a phone call?? It's all very contradictory. What is the proper way to land a job!
