An effective follow-up message is:

  • Action-oriented. Encourage candidates to respond and note this will give you access to their resume, and contact information!

  • Succinct. Keep it short & general enough to be relevant to all candidates regardless of what your initial message said.

Examples

  1. Good Morning,

    We wanted to bump this to the top of your inbox in case you missed it (we know these are busy times)! Based on your profile preview, we think you'd be a great fit at our school.

    Please respond when you have a chance. Doing so will grant us access to your full resume and credentials so we can explore the fit further.

    Best,
    The Hiring Team

  2. Hi there,

    I'm circling back to see if you've had the chance to review our previous message.

    Your profile preview caught our eye so please respond here to give us access to your name (instead of just initials) & resume and we can take it from there.

    Best,
    The Hiring Team

  3. Hello,

    We have an opportunity we'd like to share with you. Have you had the chance to review our previous message?

    Please respond here to give us access to your contact info & resume so we can move you forward.

    Best,
    The Hiring Team


We also have an automated follow-up message feature allows you to create one pre-set reminder message that is automatically sent to candidates who haven’t responded to your initial outreach after 3 week days.

Note: This is a global feature, turning it on means all candidates you've sent an initial message to in the past 3 days will be nudged if they have not responded.
