It seems that I am leaving candidates a greater percentage of voicemails these days. I've be playing with different messages to see if one gets a greater call back percentage than another, but can't really tell so far based on the data. I typically leave it somewhat vague (because in my area, legal, most candidates want in-house, and most of our positions are law firm, so I don't mention the employer type). But I'd love to hear if anyone out there has a format that they use for voicemails that seems to work well in getting candidates to return calls (for purposes of this discussusion, I'm really only concerned with candidates...)
Does anyone have any recommendations for voicemails that have worked for them?
Respect the 140 character count. It’s just to start the dialogue. Sample:
'Hi Elise! New xxx job in your area. Let me know where to send you more info or call xxx if interested in this one. ~Rickie'
Thanks Rickie, I need to give that a try
