2) Set a goal of meeting people who work there. The more people you meet, the more likely it is you’ll build the relationships needed to be referred into the company. Each time you meet an employee and get to know them, ask if they’d be willing to introduce you to someone else who works there. Before you know it, you’ll have a set of contacts you can tap into to get a job at the company.
