Is phone tag slowing you down in your job search? Are your emails with potential hiring authorities lobbing back and forth with no personal contact? Change your message method. It’s a simple thing to do and will offer a more effective response. Here is an example of a clear, concise message:
“Hello, my name is Jerry Robinson, and I am a dentist in Philadelphia, PA. I have been working as an Associate since 1979; however, I am ready to find a new experience. I thought I might touch base to see if you have any new opportunities. Contact me either at (555) 555-5555 after 4:00 p.m. any day this week, or email me at email@example.com and let me know when I can talk directly with you. Again, my name is Dr. Robinson, and my number is (555) 555-5555. Thanks, and I look forward to talking with you soon.”
Simplicity is often the best tool to use in communication, but include key information to lay the groundwork for what could potentially be a new beginning in your career.
