Submitted an application? Great! Now Reach Out

Found an opportunity? Great! Once you have applied, make sure to reach out to your company contact (recruiter) to let them know. In this message, be sure to briefly include: 

  1. When you applied and on what platform
  2. Why you are interested in the role/company
  3. Short summary of the value you bring

Reaching out can both set you apart and increase your chances of being invited for an interview. Remember all the relationship building and work you put into maintaining your connection? This is the moment where they will have the opportunity to champion and advocate for you if you’ve made a positive impression and kept them informed.
