Course Description

UPDATE: 3/1/2016. Thousands of students have taken my recruiter trainings on Udemy to improve their cold recruiting emails and recruiting skills. See 5 star reviews below.

Take this recruiter training to learn how to write powerful cold emails (recruiting emails). Easily and simply. This is for recruiters by a recruiter.

“Clint, Got about a 50% return on the emails with the new method...nice.“

No risk, money back guarantee: This recruiter training is backed by an unconditional, Udemy 30 day money-back guarantee.

I searched for a cold email for recruiters training but couldn't find one. The material and courses I found were either geared towards salespeople writing cold emails to sell things. Or seemed “outdated and corporate”.

They weren’t for a recruiter like me, who wants to learn how to write cold emails or improve my cold emails to recruit more candidates to fill jobs.

The fastest way to improve any skill is by action.

I’m glad you found this recruiter training.

This is the recruiter training you have been searching for. If you spend time writing cold emails or cold LinkedIn Inmails to recruit candidates to fill jobs, this recruiter training is for you.

Cold Email Recruiter Training: Write Powerful Cold Emails is perfect for freelance or independent recruiters who run their own recruiting businesses and want to learn how to write cold email or master the skill.

I’m an agency recruiter / corporate recruiter, will this recruiter training work for me?

If you put the time in and do the work, this recruiter training will absolutely work for you.

What if I’ve been recruiting for 5, 10, 15, or more years?

You are also a good candidate for this recruiter training.

A number of veteran recruiters came into the training with the mindset, “If I learn just one new thing it’s worth it”. The recruiter training EXCEEDED their expectations.

If a veteran recruiter can learn new techniques and improve their cold recruiting emails and Inmails, I know this cold email training can help you. It’s only a matter of mindset and effort.

How much experience do I need to have?

Ideally you have a few months or years of recruiting experience.

Why does this matter?

Because now you know how hard recruiting is. You realize writing effective recruiting cold emails can be hard... if you don’t know effective strategies and a system.

In this time you have already fallen into the email template trap.

Now that you are free from the trap, you want more.

You want an edge. You want to learn 1). a better way to write cold email. 2). A cold emailing system filled with strategies that work.

You are ready to invest in your skills to get more of the results you want: Access to more candidates without wasting time.

This recruiter training simplifies writing effective cold recruiting emails and teaches strategies and a system to make writing easier.

What types of candidates will this recruiter training help me reach?

This recruiter training is best suited for recruiters who want to have conversations and build relationships with hard to reach, passive candidates.

Anyone can email a candidate that posted their resume. Every other recruiter already is. Why waste time there?

What others are saying about the recruiter training:

“I've been doing technical recruiting for over 4 years now. I have seen firsthand the difficulties of converting passive candidates to active.

I was a little hesitant to try new strategies that Clint presented. But as soon as I started using them, I noticed a 16% increase in my cold messaging response rate!

Just wanted to say thanks for the great course on cold emailing. It's helped me to recruit and hire some great candidates."

Instructor Biography

Clinton Buelter, Lead / Senior Technical Recruiter

I have always been fascinated by studying people and what makes us tick!

Hey! I'm Clinton Buelter.

I've built a number of top notch technical teams in competitive markets like the Silicon Valley and Austin, Texas.

Before jumping out and launching my own company (I used a lot of my recruiting and cold emailing powers to do all of my own business development.) I was a very successful technical recruiter at VMware - a large U.S. software company that provides cloud and virtualization software and services with revenues in excess of $5 Billion.

I've also recruited for startups and mid size companies like Glassdoor.

I'm driven by finding the most effective way to do things, personal development, (helping other people) recruiting, software, and traveling.

I'm a firm believer that if you have the right mindset and work ethic. You can learn and achieve anything you set before yourself (and even outperform the "naturals").

I hope that the information I share will help you surpass my level of performance and success : ) Connect with me on LinkedIn.
