I'd highly recommend to everyone that you go the "direct enquiry" route
if available. A few months ago, when it looked like our company was a
bit shaky, I applied for a position with the BBC and only had their
online application process available. I received an email which
politely informed me that I did not have sufficient qualifications for
a Perl/Web development position with the BBC.
Not to sound arrogant, but *cough*.
