Genuinely asking - why do recruiters think it’s acceptable to send unsolicited emails on a Sunday or outside of business hours generally? I get enough emails outside of business hours, and the last thing I want is unsolicited emails from recruiters to sort through as well. It is incredibly irritating.

Stop…. You control when you read it. If it is that annoying turn off email notifications on ‘off hours’. Although, in our line of business, they should be rare.

As a recruiter, 100% agree that none of us should be sending cold emails to attorneys on the weekend. End of story.

In a poll this month on LI, 44 percent of associates preferred Sunday night over any other time to receive recruiter emails. 2nd choice, Friday!

The reason we do it…associates respond!

I never ever send an email on a Monday, why? Zero percent response rate.

We track response rates and know what works.

The response rate is likely highest on Sunday nights because we are dreading what's waiting for us on Monday or annoyed from having worked all weekend!

I personally would prefer to receive recruiting e-mails on off hours—otherwise it’s not going to get my attention because I am busy doing my job during business hours.

Just read the subject of the email and ignore it

most of the time we have automated systems that we write personal messages into. The system then tweaks the name and the positions you apply for etc and then you get an automatic email.

This seems like the most understandable reason honestly.

You could either not pay much attention to the e-mails or jjust turn the notifications off. You could also try communicating the ideal time for you to receive e-mails to them! Who knows, maybe they'd abide.

Or you could not try to control when other people work, and respond on your time.

You can just answer or ignore on Monday. You don’t have to respond to emails as they come in. It’s not the law.

I was recently offered a Zoom interview. The school had 10 interview slots for me to choose from. Three were one day this week and the rest are next week. I chose the first time slot available. Should I have waited until one of the last slots so I was fresher on their mind when choosing a candidate? I am just sitting here stressing out until I here something. Also, do interviewers still appreciate a hand written thank you for the interview?
