I am curious as to what everyone's take is on leaving voice mail. This of course is only pertaining to cold calling passive candidates or clients. Do you leave a voice mail when you can't get a hold of them? Or do you find it better to have some planted as you call though your list?
With all the marketing gimmicks people have to deal with its best to leave a short message to let the person
know why you are calling, and in a professional voice, why you believe a return call could be mutually
beneficial. I "hate" calls that don't leave messages and always assume they are marketing calls and "NEVER"
call that number back. Frank Gregg, GREGG & Associates
Leave a message, be interesting, and tell them you are a recruiter..at least then the person can make an informed decision as to whether or not they want to talk to you. Same goes for emails.
