    Hello, gents.

    I am wondering if apart Linkedin, somebody knows where I can buy direct contact details for reaching managers within companies.

    Basically, I am trying to apply for work and I would like to find the direct contact of the manager of a specific department.

    Does anybody have any hint? I am currently applying for work and some help is really appreciated.

    Kind Regards, Frankie.

    In my experience, LinkedIn really is the best option.

    You may find companies that sell lists of managers/owners/etc. but they're usually out of date and outrageously expensive. Realistically, how would these list companies know that Bob from Machine Co. got promoted to manager a month ago when he was only a lowly data entry specialist then?

    I haven't looked into these types of lists in a couple of years now so maybe the scene has changed. :eek:

    Thanks a lot for your reply, much appreciated.

    I contacted a few of them for enquiring about the price, it's over a 1000$.

    I guess that the only type of premium account that can help me is the "Sale", which has a free trial but costs 870$ per 12-months.

    I will see what I can get out of it.

    From what I learned in the past, a lot of these data-list companies obtain their data from a handful of databases (I think Oracle was one of them).

    Assuming you're in the US, if you have a library card from your local library then you may have access for free to the same type of listing that these companies use. My account is still too new to add links to my post so search for 'Reference USA dot com' and you'll be able to find the website. From there you'll need your library card information to access their database.

    I used to use these guys for lists back in the day and they were always very good as well as helpful.

    I do not know if they will have what you want but they will probably be honest with you if they do not if they operate like they did when I bought from them.
