The world runs on familiarity. When I meet one creative director they give me the names and direct lines of two others, and so it builds. It was in this way that I was able to meet just about every CD in town. Referrals. If you are recommended by someone, you are more likely to secure another meeting. It is the closest thing to nepotism.

I did my calls and secured two meetings on Monday with two other recruiters, again, through referrals. They said there may be let's hope.

So, you've contacted everyone you know and you've exhausted every connection that you have. Where do you go from here? It may seem hopeless at this point and you may feel lost, but you have to keep grinding. This is how I felt at this point freelance copywriter link.
