Dipping my toe back in to the job searching waters. Got handed my last few opportunities without having to actually put in the hard work. Any advice/ do’s and dont’s on cold-emailing recruiters?

Does anyone actually get a job through a recruiter anymore? I say decide where you would like to work and network in.

Recruiters don’t do their jobs most of the time. Sorry but it’s true. The more prominent the agency, the less their recruiter gives a singular shit.

Start by hitting up your friends and ask them to vouch for you to their CDs and recruiters. Follow the trades and see what places just won what accounts; they’ll usually be on a hiring spree. Email CDs and ECDs you genuinely admire and show them your book, and ask to meet up with them to see if there’s a possibility of working together.

My advice is do whatever you did the last few times.
