Emails That Get Responses From Recruiters

It’s frustrating.  You find a company where you’d like to work.  You have right credentials.  You email the recruiter — and nothing happens.

This article gives you some common sense tips on how to write an email that catches the eye of recruiters — and more importantly gets them to take a look at your resume.

I like these four tips:

  • Know what you want
  • Keep it short
  • Be respectful — observe the power dynamic
  • Make it easy for the recruiter to respond to you

Beside that, I like the two scripts — and initial email and a follow up email — that the author provides.  This is solid career advice.  Use it.
