"Anybody else like to explore what businesses are in office buildings dow..."
Sometimes I like to stroll up in those tall office buildings and see what different companies are in there. Look like I got business there and blend in a bit. I want to actually do some work with a couple companies I saw buried in some of these buildings but Im a little stuck on how to progress to the next step in terms of making an introduction.
I could just send an email but Im sure id get lost in the shuffle, don't even know if they're "hiring" so to speak.
But yeah, anybody had any luck walking upon a business?
(This is HBO btw...I didn't know they had an "Office" in Atlanta)

The people who do hiring for these sorts of companies tend to pull talent from recruitment firms; 70% or so of the time, they don't hire directly. In the cases where they do hire directly, it's typically for people with significant amounts of experience, or the company is hiring people on contract (temporary) themselves.
If you wanna work in these places, you need to sign up with some of these recruitment/temp agencies and get your resume/edit reel game together. The Creative Group, for example. Walking in the office, provided you found it, isn't going to get you much of anything than a smile, a handshake, and an empty exchange.

yes, this was about 15 yrs ago. but that's how i got the gig. i too have heard that is standard practice.
it makes sense too - those companies get thousands of resume submissions from randoes b/c their addresses are posted all over the place - on the back of every DVD, book, CD, record, et al. sorting through all of that mess is quite a task. they tend to hire a 3rd party to handle that part of the screening.
