Hey All,
Begining my cold call email spree for a full time senior consulting gig. Non-target (top 40) program with limited alumni in the consulting field.

Looking for advice on:

  1. Successful initial email, and response rate (currently 15%)
  2. Who are your target receivers? (currently Managers, Partners, principals, and recruiters)
  3. Any tips or tricks for high conversion rate for referrals after an informational phone call.

Much appreciated, and happy hunting.
