When putting others in touch

When you’re going to make an introduction between two people who can benefit from knowing one another, sending a really thoughtful email intro is something Worship says goes a long way. “It can be straightforward. ‘So and so meet so and so. So and so is doing X. I thought it might be mutually beneficial for you two to connect, but I’ll let you take it from here.’ And it’s on them to make the connection from there or not.” Surveys have found that referrals have a significantly higher applicant-to-hire rate than those who apply for a job with no referral. That just shows you the power of a referral, and what it can mean to those in your network when you make these introductions.
