E02 – Do’s and Don’ts of Passive Candidate Approaches

Getting your e-mail or InMail approaches to passive talent right is a crucial step of the recruiting process! Whether you are headhunting executive talent or looking for niche profiles, it’s important to understand how to approach a passive candidate in order to increase your chances of getting on the phone with them. After all, they might not be looking for a role change at all, not really bought into your company/brand, or getting way too many messages from recruiters on a daily basis! So how can your message to them stand out?

In this episode, I’d like to give you my own personal tips around what I recommend (and don’t recommend doing) when you’re looking to get a candidate interested enough to have a chat with you – and more!

Do you agree or disagree with some of my advice? Is there something else you’d like to add to the list? Feel free to let me know!
