As a tech recruiter focusing in the IT space, what is the audiences opinion on various ways to reach out to potential candidates for a job opportunity- when you have never worked or connected with them before? (The best way, open to honest feedback)
For Job Seekers that are either employed or actively on the market- Do you prefer a cold call or email or text as the first form of contact?
For TA folks- What is your stance on this? Do you prefer emailing potential candidates first or do you like to call candidates?
I have my thoughts on this process, but wanted to hear the what you think!
Also, for both audiences, is there a better way to reach candidates that is more condusive to an inital connect?
@azzcatdesign Made a point in her response about posting the salary or rate range in the inital contact email. So I wanted to gain the Elpha members opinions on this: Do you think this should be a SOP going forward on the inital out reach email?
Also, she had mentioned slimmed version of bullet points for the jd. I prefer to send the jd link from our companies career page. What are your preferences when you first receive emails? Or is there another way that is better?
