What a Hiring Manager is Really Thinking About

“…This is the time to use email. Do a little research on the company. See if your lead is listed on the company website. Then look into their background and previous positions, if you can. The more you know about them, the more you have to talk to them about. Remember, people are always more open to someone who either shares their interests or asks them good questions…”

“…This message needs to be very short. Cut your first draft in half. Be merciless. Ideally the entire note should be less than a medium-sized paragraph. This is not the time to pitch your life story. This is the time to give someone a small chunk of relevant information, and to inform them that you’ll follow up later.”
