Send a follow up email to get hired

Follow up emails seem annoying, but they help you get hired.

And they’re not annoying! (At least 99% of the time).

It’s always possible to be over the top, but it’s rare to see that among job hunters.

When you send a Crash pitch in an email, you easily could get a response right away, because video pitches are impressive. But if you don’t, keep at it. Get over any fear that you’re too pushy or persistent, and assume you’re not. You’re actually signaling that you’re really interested in THAT company. When you follow up you can get hired.

Follow up every 2 days to get hired

Send a follow up email every 2 days until you get a response back. You could even send a second, warm pitch!

This is how to make a job hunt a sales campaign, and feel empowered. Follow up to get hired. Don’t skip it.

For months I was struggling to fit my non-traditional experiences into a resume and it simply didn’t work. With Crash, I was able to go from pitch to interview to offer within 24 hours. It felt like magic.
