The most asked question after my recent blogs was to share my message template, that helped me get Interview Calls from Facebook(Meta), ShareChat, Koo App….

Here you go…

Here’s my resume. If you find me a deserving candidate, I would be glad to :

  • Always try attaching resume in form of a drive link (it isn’t possible for everyone to download your files on LinkedIn).
  • Be specific with your qualifications and achievements.
  • Send 1 message covering all details.
  • Send to multiple people 😉


  • Don’t send a separate Hi/Hello message without specifying what help you need. Remember the difference between LinkedIn and WhatsApp. People would hardly respond back. Instead, write what you exactly need from the other party.
  • Don’t spam people multiple times. Try at most twice with an interval of at least 2 weeks. Then, approach a different person😆
  • Don’t ping me on LinkedIn to verify your message 🙈. This is the most I know and I have shared it here.
  • Don’t forget to attach your resume.

All the best 👍🏻 !!
