Don’t become one of e-mail’s victims.
Very interesting take from Fordyce Letter on taking the path of least resistance:
I know at least 10 previously very big-billing recruiters who fell into the email “addiction” and, like a drug abuser, it sent them into a living hell and out of this business. Don’t become one of email’s victims.
Email is the classic case of confusing activity with productivity. Remember to never use email in this business for anything related to selling. That means 95% of everything you do should not involve email. Additionally, only use email before work and after-hours. There is nothing on email that cannot wait until after telephone time.
Good advice for recruiters, and probably good advice for job-seekers as well.
