      Select the sequence to contact your candidates

      You can use any sequence you want depending on your needs and preferences, internally our very well known and coveted HR, Violette uses the Mercury sequence. Which sends a connection request (without a connection note), a message where she’ll offer her offer, her expectations and a follow-up message.

      After several tests, we have seen that almost everyone accepts in their network someone who sends them a connection request, unless your sector of activity is very far from the person you are contacting.

      Once the connection request has been accepted, you can send a message that will land in the person’s mailbox and a follow-up message in case they have not responded.

      You can choose a connection request sequence (with a connection note) and only a follow-up message. Or on the contrary, choose a sequence that will have more than 2 messages.

      ➑️ Choose the best sequence!
