Sometimes interesting things get retweeted by people I follow that I otherwise would never had seen. I loved this question about going the extra mile in trying to get noticed when applying for roles. Like raising children, there’s no shortage of opinions when it comes to hiring and recruiting practices.
I’d recommend checking out the thread for the responses. This one in particular stood out to me.
I think we often discount the effort put forth by candidates if the message isn’t crafted in the exact way that we would like. Some of the best people I’ve hired might have had less experience but showed determination and a willingness to learn.
