I have something for you I think you might be interested in…
But even if you’re not, there’s something else in here that you need to pay attention to.
So let’s get on with it.
First, I got a DM on LinkedIn that I figured I would share today:
Eric, I thought I would reach out today as I came across your profile while searching LinkedIn; I took a moment to check out your website as well—your resume writing and career search guidance is spot on. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with professionals on the importance of resume writing. If I can ever be a resource in your coaching, please let me know. I would like to share that we are searching for a Global Delivery Leader to lead a team in Wilmington, DE. I am wondering if it might be too much to ask if you could share with your network or refer someone that might have interest? Strong EPM, consulting experience is required, banking industry experience would be a huge win. Perhaps through your coaching, there may be someone with interest? Having you share with your network is truly appreciated. Thank you for your time, hope you are well.

There’s a few things I want to highlight for you.
1. If this is a job that you might be interested in reach out to her directly for more information (don’t say I referred you unless I did…)
2. The reason I replied and agreed to share this is because it was clear she took the extra effort to personalize her note. That goes a long when trying to get a response. If you’re interested in learning how to write message that get people engaging with you, send me an email with “RESPONSE” in the subject line
3. Even during a crisis, I still get a fair amount of these requests and I usually don’t do anything with them, because it’s more work for me to maintain and try to follow-up and answer questions on it, etc. I still have my full-time gig, which has gotten a lil crazy this week BUT… right now, I am offering to pass on any such leads to anyone who enrolls in my Breakthrough Resume Writing course today.
