Find company recruiter email addresses

After you apply online for a job, don't just sit back and wait (because you probably won't get a response). Instead, always send a cold email to the recruiter as a follow up on your application. We recommend that you find a recruiter who has a connection to you (same school, hometown, hobbies, etc) and then write a personalized and short email based on that and the company.

At Pathrise, candidates who send cold emails after submitting their applications triple their response rate. If you are not sure what to say, use this guide with our cold email template to help you.

In order to help you successfully send cold emails, we have compiled email addresses for recruiters at many of the top tech companies. Use our email list and guide to help you send great cold emails.
