"Well said Sheila, the California Chrome to the 'most qualified' candidate analogy is a great one.  As you state, the definition of an ideal candidate is rarely limited to the one with the best skills, abilities and knowledge. …"

The “Favorite” Or The Most Qualified Does Not Always Win The Race Or Get The Job! This Includes California Chrome

Posted on June 10, 2014 at 4:10pm 1 Comment

The Favorite Doesn’t Always Win The Race.

The Most Qualified Doesn’t Always Get The Job.


Favorites don’t always win the race nor does the most qualified always get the job. However those who made it into the race, did it based upon talent. There is no…

Using Corporate Emails to Recruit Produces Results

Recruiting with corporate emails produces results!

I know because I exploit this technique.


Using corporate emails as a way to connect and recruit passive candidates allows the recruiter to create awareness regarding potential opportunities to these highly desired professionals. It presents opportunities directly to the passive candidate talent…

Opps We Did Not Connect Recruiting Email!

Posted on February 12, 2013 at 2:39pm 0 Comments

Recruiting emails can be very effective when looking to connect with potential candidates and networking resources. It is also a great way to send a message to say, I  missed connecting with you!



Over the years I have had great success connecting via email during the recruiting process. As a proven vehicle used to reach out to  potential…

an exam ple of a very successful email that I get a good response to is:

Subject  line:  Keen to listen


Hello ....  I am not sure if this is relevant, perhaps you could let me know.

I have come across your details on (state where you have found them) Brilliant CV by the way. You have probably been inundated with calls/emails from recruitment consultants - you probably never want to speak to another consultant again!!

The reason I wanted to make contact, is that I am helping a client find someone with your skills and experience.  However, I have no idea what you are specifically looking for, if indeed you are still looking.

What would be the best way for me to find out?

Although I have not measured the results of it's success, I feel that it gets a large response and really helps to make contact with people I have failed to make contact with any other way.

It might be worth giving it a try

Generally $100 - 200K positions - sometimes sales positions which are not that high on base.


As stated, emails (utilizing various methods including industry specific data bases) work to open doors with passive candidates.  But the response % is far, far lower.  No one in this industry can make the claim you made.

We also have had great success with emails.  But your article (I don't have it in front of me) claimed something like an 80% response rate. And your sample messages were (in my humble view)  quite wordy - in a world where people lack patience.  There is also a high degree of skepticism when someone they don't know calls them an opinion leader or something like that. 


I don't know how many you send out on an average search (say for a sales manager) - maybe you send a small number and make them highly personalized.  We have been using emails marketing for years in executive search and the response rates are far lower - yet the method is still highly successful for candidate contacts and referrals.

Thank you for inviting me to connect. I too lived in Amsterdam (Haarlem) about 30 years ago. I really loved it. I do want to get back someday.

All the best,
