Maybe you’ve been refreshing the Careers page at your dream company for months.
Alternatively, perhaps you’ve heard glowing reviews about a company from friends — but whenever you check, they’re still not hiring for any roles for which you’d qualify.
Whatever the case, if you feel a company’s culture could be a great fit for you, you might consider sending a cold email so hiring managers can keep you in-mind if a role becomes available.
But that’s easier said than done. If you sound too pushy, you risk alienating the hiring manager. A good cold email should be concise and focus on how you can add value to the team. When done correctly, a cold email is a good opportunity to network and get your name in front of the right people.
Fortunately, the folks at Resume.io put together an infographic, which details the 8 essential elements of a persuasive email you can use to apply at your dream company. Take a look now, and then check out How to Write a Letter of Interest in 2021 [Examples + Template].
