This Marketing HR Managers list was scrapped from LinkedIn in 2020 and may be outdated. Still, try sending them cold emails. A draft cold email is attached as well.

This was 2020 covid era (good ol’ times…lol). Times have changed. People have switched roles and companies, but the methodology to scrap the contact details stays the same.

And cold emails work better than any profile on any job platform for scenarios where you are looking for a very specific role in a very specific industry. And it was 2020. Since then I have written a lot of cold mails and now I follow a tried and tested method. If you want to learn how to create an effective cold mail, click here to read my post about it.

If you are reading this, I have been in your position multiple times, and trust me, it gets better. Or in Jogging Baboon’s from BoJack Horseman words: “Every day it gets a little easier… But you gotta do it every day — that’s the hard part. But it does get easier.” 

Be shameless in asking for help. Do NOT hesitate. People do not think about you as much as you think they do. 

Here is a draft which worked for me for your reference

Note: This is a draft that went through multiple variations with each cold email. Your background, skill set, etc are very different from mine, but give it a go.
