I’m hoping we can all share our experiences with mail-merge here. I’d like to start by sharing a learning that I’ve had recently:
I got a much higher response rate from startups in the Seattle area than San Francisco.
I also created a new CV with no dates to battle the bias of ageism. And I think this helped too.
I’m attaching my new CV here in case someone wants to take a look. But these two factors together lead to a higher response.
I’m not sure how much of a contributing factor each of them separately is. But I strongly believe if we all share our learnings and experiences we can arrive at a much more streamlined mail-merge experience for all of us.
Hoping to hear from all the fellow Pathrisers Happy hunting.
