Thanks! Your additional advice is great. And definitely, I will continue to search and interview in the interim. I'll keep all options open on my end.
Patience.. got it. Thanks!
I sent thank you emails already, so I will take your advice and hold off on any other messages for now.
Very helpful. I will keep you posted. Thanks!
Lean Startup sounds very interesting; I'll keep both of these in mind as well. Thanks for sharing!
Awesome interview, Chris! It's always great to get background information and behind-the-scenes stories.
And seeing as you are an English major, I'll take your book endorsements with a lot of weight! I'll trust your judgement and taste in literature.
Been meaning to add to my reading queue, so I'm going to look into Craig Thompson and Neil Gaiman. Thanks for namedropping!
Really appreciate this Jason! In all honesty, I wasn't a 10/10 fit for the role that I inquired about, so that would explain why it was an ineffective way for me to try to connect that one time.
I will remember this advice going forward when contacting hiring managers directly. Thanks again!
This definitely helps. Thanks Radley!
Hi Radley, I am open to all suggestions of reaching out to someone during the job hunting process. So i definitely appreciate this advice. From your experience, does this mainly apply to just sales oriented roles? I am not in sales, by the way
I have tried this one time recently--and it may have just been that specific situation, as I was late in applying for a role/they must've been deep in the interview process already--but I attempted to contact a hiring manager with no success.
If I were to attempt this again, do you have any tips of 'impressing' the hiring manager? Does that only apply to 'wowing' them with the resume/qualifications?
Thank you for your response Jason! Coming from a Director of Talent Acquisition it gives me great perspective of the inner workings of making connections with recruiters!
Can I also ask you, are these messages in reference strictly from LinkedIn alone? And what is the preferred method of being contacted on your end; in other words, does it make a difference trying to connect to recruiters through an email address or directly on LinkedIn (if it even makes a difference)? I usually don't have an email address unless contact information is listed on a job posting, career portal, or LinkedIn.
And how important is the email/LinkedIn subject line in getting the message read? After all, it is the first point of communication when trying to reach out. Should the subject line get straight to the point, or should it be more creative in trying to get read?
