Is it a good idea to message the hiring manager or just apply formally for the position?

    Unless you know them personally and well...a message is not an application.

    Depends...is there a job opening or are you cold calling? If there is a job opening, apply - the hiring manager doesn't have time to take calls from every potential applicant. If you are cold calling, call, but keep it short - i.e., Hi, I am calling to see if your company is hiring or have plans to hire in the near future? If you get a yes, ask about the application procedure. If no, thank him/her and hang up.

    No. Why? Why not just apply?

    The hiring manager doesn't have time to take calls, read messages or emails from job seekers! They would hope you would know better than to BOTHER anyone regarding your job application. You need to apply like everybody else and wait. Do not call them to follow up on your application, they got it, they review it, they decide to call you, they decide not to call you. Apply at 25 places a week to increase your chances.

    Apply formally for the position - that is the best way.
