GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- In today's economy, it isn't easy to find a job. So how can you give yourself the best chance to find a position? Cold calling may be a solution.

Jeremy Berg from BERG Professional Staffing discussed what that means and how to best use it.

Here are his suggestions:

1. Take the initiative to call a company to see if they are hiring by starting with companies that were/are: 
- Competitors 
- Close to home 
- Interesting to you

2. Take the time to stop by a company and find out if they are hiring. Why would you do this? 
- Companies have internal job postings 
- Find out the company environment 
- Possibly meet the decision maker
