How do you add a person who recommended you for a job in the cover letter of a resume?

To do this, mention your shared connection in the first paragraph of your cover letter. Include the name of your referral, your relationship and how they are familiar with your qualifications. Summarize why they are recommending you and explain how your experience has prepared you for this job.

How do I email the hiring manager directly?

Send the email on a weekday, preferably between 7 am and 10 am. Address the Hiring Manager by name, if possible. It’s a great personal touch, and might convey that you’ve done your research. Do not include a full cover letter in the body of your email, unless instructed to do so.

Should you call hiring manager after applying?

Let them know what position you’re targeting and that you would like to follow up on your application.

Should I call Starbucks after applying?

The general manager is usually a good bet. You can try and call the stores you applied for and speak to the manager. Never take your resume in. You should physically show up to the store(s) you applied to around 10 or 11 am and try to introduce yourself to a manager or assistant manager.

How long does it take to hear back from a Starbucks application?

It took me about 2 weeks to hear back. If you have any questions, you can always go into the store you applied to or call the store and ask for the store manager. After you are picked to be hired, there is also a background check process that takes another two weeks typically. It took about 2 weeks.
