Words can inspire, and words can destroy. Choose yours well. ~ Robin Sharma
The Courtesy of Follow-Ups
In this day and age of technology, we are inundated with a barrage of messages of people selling one thing or another. It's easy to dismiss a deliberate mass email pitching a job opportunity if there is no sign of a personalized touch demonstrating the recruiter has done any homework on your professional background.
Things change so quickly within the professional world and at one moment you may find yourself totally content in your role and the next find yourself blind-sided by an organizational restructure. It is in everyone's best interest to maintain some form of dialogue and to be receptive to keeping your options open.
This is a two-way street between recruiters and candidates, don't let your busy schedule stop you from a courteous follow-up as simple as "not interested, thanks for your time".
