Subject: Your 2 o’clock
I glanced at your Google calendar and saw that you’re interviewing a potential hire at 2 p.m.
Thanks for doing this. You always tell me we’re betting our company on the talents and brilliance of our creative team. “That’s our business model.” I’m grateful to you for interviewing another candidate.
Oh, and I saw the candidate’s name on your calendar. I don’t know her. But I also saw that she’s from CCAD.
I do know what “from CCAD” means.
Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of candidates and hired from all over. The folks who come from CCAD come with a promise. Year in and year out, “from CCAD” means this candidate—like everyone from CCAD—
Have fun at 2. I know it will be time well spent.
