How to Follow Up on Employee Messages/Intros to Candidates


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.

What is the optimal way to follow up with candidates?

Looking forward to connecting,
