Once every few weeks I get an email from someone who wants to work with Praxis or with me directly.
These emails have given me some solid positive case studies to showcase on the blog but they’ve also given me a good deal of examples of what NOT to do when you’re looking to get a job.
Most of these emails aren’t “bad” in a traditional sense. They’re well spoken, formatted, short, professional, and the person is clearly excited about the opportunity. Usually they’re written by someone who probably could create value.
