Many times people will use family members and friends to help them get a job.  I have done this before, but I was never successful.  Some family members will give you the cold shoulder when you approach them for a job lead or advice.  Why do they do this?  I thought family should help one another.  Does anyone else have family members who do this?

I was in the market looking for a job.  I ran into my cousin during a job fair.  She was one of the recruiting agents who was talking to perspective candidates looking to work.  I approached her and was hoping she could give me the inside scope on the company and possibly help me get a job there.  Unfortunately, she was very cold and really didn't want to spend any time talking to me.  I realize she was there to meet perspective candidates, but her behavior was very isolated.  Needless to say, I never got a job interview with the company.  The bottom line is sometimes having family members help you get a job can be a dead end.  You are better looking for a job the traditional way.
