Sales and marketing teams have been onto the secret of AI for years, augmenting their workflows with automation which allows them to scale their efforts to achieve loftier goals and produce a higher quality of work than ever before. Now, with the emergence of recruiting automation, the time has come for recruiters to experience this same revolution.

The best way to ensure you capture the attention of candidates is to send a follow up email. In fact, recruiters who use follow ups receive 50% more responses overall than those who don’t. So contrary to popular belief, you do have more than one chance to make a good first impression.
