Hiring isn’t easy.

Recruiting, assessing, and securing great people takes time, effort, care – and a whole lot of emails.

Love it or hate it (mostly hate it), email is how you most often communicate with candidates. Every message you send serves an important purpose. Every message you send also competes for attention in a noisy, jam-packed inbox.

Needless to say, email writing is high-stakes.

So we’d like to help you out.

Within the pages of this free resource, you’ll find eleven of the Recruiting Social team’s favorite – carefully-written, battlefield-tested – email templates. Covering each step of the hiring process, they will help you hit “send” faster, receive better and more replies, and keep the process moving forward.
