Have you ever found a great-fit candidate and written them a thoughtful message, only to get hit with a “not interested” or worse yet, complete silence? Unless you have recruiting superpowers, I'd venture to say you have. In fact, as passive talent becomes increasingly inundated with recruiting outreach, response rates have only continued to plummet. 

To remedy this, the Entelo team went to work to determine the tactics and strategy behind the most successful recruiting emails, using the open, click and reply rates of hundreds of thousands of emails sent through Entelo Track. After crunching millions of data points, we’ve determined the do’s and don’t's of recruiting emails. Take a look:

From sending on behalf of hiring managers to tweaking the verbiage of your ask, there are a number of ways to significantly increase your engagement with candidates. Don’t let common pitfalls keep you from connecting with the talent you’ve expertly sourced and vetted. Be sure to leverage these statically-proven insights to spark their interest and begin meaningful conversations.
