Best Practices for Emailing Hiring Managers
|March 25, 2012||Posted by admin under WELCOME|
The email is often the first point of contact between you and a perspective employer, and can solely determine whether or not you are considered for the position.
Before You Email, Connect
Recruiters get hundreds of emails for a single job opening, so you need to make sure your email stands out from the rest.
To get noticed, first ask yourself, “How can I connect with the recruiter besides just sending an email?”
A great place to start is to use Simply Hired’s Who Do I Know? feature. Log into LinkedIn via Simply Hired’s search result page and check to see if you have any connections at the company. If you have a connection, either reach out to this person directly for a referral to the position of interest or request an introduction.
