    Another problem with recruiter emails is the companies and jobs are so anonymised there’s nothing interesting or special about them.

  2. @philgyford That's an interesting point - what would you like to see in the emails instead?

  3. @ClareBurr As much info as you get in a normal ad on the web, but I assume recruiters don’t want to be merely a conduit for job ads!

  4. @philgyford Do you think that having info that piques your interest and then a link through to the relevant job ad would be enough?

  5. @ClareBurr It’d help. Ads must be tough generally - so much of the language is very similar for every ad, and so if one is able to be picky…

    @ClareBurr …it’s little things that make a position/place appealing. Some times it’s simply the tone/language of the ad feeling right.

    @ClareBurr I guess, as well as bullet points, I want a *feel* for the place & people… which an anonymous, recruiter-written ad rarely has.

  6. @philgyford I think talking like a human being talking to another human being is the key (and often forgotten)

  7. @ClareBurr Yeah - the urge to make it sound AMAZING can make people write like an advert rather than just be human.
