Eva is Talent Partner at Levelup Ventures. Every recruiter that I know has his or her own unique problems, but they all have one thing in common. Everyone uses email to reach-out to candidates!

If you send the wrong emails, you’ll end up losing candidates. During the presentation, we’re going to dive into the nitty-gritty details of how to actually write these emails that feel more personalised.
