I know that big companies typically receive a lot of propositions. We
have built a  completely new product that we would like to invite
Careerbuilder to use (for free at the beginning). I wondered if you
could give me ideas on the best way to contact them.

I was thinking about hiring a lobbyist to find a way to Careerbuilder
executives. But lobbyists are typically involved with public affairs.

Any idea what I could do to maximize the chance of reaching the right
person there at Careerbuilder?

Please make sure your answer really deserves my 30 bugs.

Hello klaus777-ga,

Careerbuilder has a large variety of interests in the recruiting
marketplace as well as many partners and affiliates. It's difficult to
guess how to best approach them without knowing the capabilities of
your product -- which you probably want to keep confidential. My hunch
is that your best bet will be to identify the appropriate internal
group that would care about your product so that you can approach them
with your proposal.

Are you looking for generic information about how to pitch ideas to a
large company? How familiar are you with the recruiting industry? I
note that you have asked many other questions related to this field on
Google Answers. What type of information are you looking for
considering the fairly low price of your question?

I look forward to your clarification.

Hi czh-ga

Thanks for your interest. I am looking at ways to pitch my product to
them. I have no clear idea how to do that. But one way that have been
successful with some other company is following. We hired a HR
consultant to analyze our product. Based on her analysis she connected
us to her customers.

So what I am looking for is something like that. The traditional
pitching ways are, therefore, not really of big interest. To put it
bluntly, who can I pay to bring me there?
