Callback in One city trying to pick up another 1

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Sep 24, 2012 12:10 pm

So I have a cb in the morning and I would love to get another one set up in the afternoon. Obviously this late in the game very tough. But what should my e-mail read like?

Thanks!

Hi [ABC],

I will be in [city X] tomorrow for interviews. If you are interested, I would enjoy the chance to meet with you and some of your colleagues tomorrow afternoon/Wednesday/whatever.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,
wants-job-real-bad.

[this note presumes some prior contact with the person receiving the email. if not, i would go for a little longer email.]

This late in the game I would call and ask.

Hopefully, it's harder for them to say "no." You know that you will get an immediate response (sometimes recruiters don't respond for days) and I think it shows more initiative.

Agree on calling. I used this strategy and always called. When the recruiter didn't pick up the phone, which happened in all cases except for one, I left a voicemail and then sent the email. I also mentioned in the email that I had left a voicemail. If the recruiter answers, they will want to check with the recruiting/hiring committee to determine if they want you to come in or not. But you will get a quicker response if you call.
