- Etiquette for email introductions 2 answers
What is the correct way to phrase the email when I refer a friend to my organization/to my other friends for a job?
Some people suggested looping in the person who is referred in the CC field in the job referral email, along with a small description about the person being referred, which sounds correct.
This is not an introduction email, but specifically me referring my friend to other people for job openings, where I want to show my friend in good light/highlight his/her strengths.
The receiver is not a recruiter, so may not like to be directly contacted from my friend. The target receivers are regular employees, who I hope will check for openings in their organisation.
I want to make the email informative enough so that the receiver gets enough info and interest to actually go through the resume, and also let my friend know that I have actually forwarded her resume at the same time.
Is there a professional/widely accepted etiquette to refer someone I know for jobs in my/friends organization? It'd be great if you can point to any templates for the same!
