Dear fill in the blank, I really need your help

The Office - Season 9Just to be clear, this is NOT networking.

  • This is xxxxxxxx with xxxxx Services. I wanted to reach out to you today to network and see if you know of anyone that might be interested in either of the following candidate’s backgrounds?
  • Thanks. Did you contact xxxxxxx with  xxxxxxx in Fort Worth? This might be of some interest to him.
  • I don’t know. I send these out to thousands of people. Why do you ask?  

People are busy. Successful people are even busier. If you want someone to help you, don’t send a mass email and then reply like this when someone actually bites. Be personal, be organized, be aware, be smart – and – always attempt to make a personal connection. This guy? I’m not connecting.
