I recently left my job where I'd been for three years. I've been in the same field for nearly ten and have racked up a pretty big list of contacts. Some of these contacts have open positions that interest me where they are working. So, what I'm wondering is if in this situation I should reach out to them personally before or after I submit my resume. When I've been hiring, I can't say I've had a preference, but I'm wondering what other folks' experience has been, or what you would prefer in that situation.
