How to Follow Up on Employee Messages/Intros to Candidates

Following up on employee messages is the simplest way to close a warm referral candidate.

Teamable allows you to focus your attention on high quality leads with a valuable intro from an employee, but to get the most from these leads, you must follow up. Luckily, we've made that fast, simple and effective.

Q: What is the optimal way to follow up with candidates?

A: Whenever an employee makes a referral and you are cc'd.

This is a case where speed and follow up make all the difference.
