Comments from yesterday’s Copywriting for Recruitment course with Mitch Sullivan:

“5 star, fantastic day. Lots of learning and very insightful.”
James Gallagher

“Do you think you’re writing great recruitment ads? I can *passionately* tell you that – until you’ve taken this course – you are not. Sign up now. It’s worth it.”
José Rubio

“You taught an old dog new tricks, and it was thoroughly enjoyable.”
Sue Prytherch

“Fantastic day spent with Mitch Sullivan and Jackie Barrie looking at the world of copywriting. If you are looking to stand out from the noise and create some truly measurable and engaging online content these guys will pull zero punches in telling you in no simple terms to ‘stop talking like a recruiter, write like a human!’ Extremely refreshing and highly recommended.”
James Gallagher on LinkedIn

“Spent a rainy day with Mitch Sullivan and Jackie Barrie on their ‘Copywriting for Recruiters course’. Wanted to attend for a couple of years but never had the opportunity until now. If you are involved in creating content, candidate attraction or just ‘passionate’ adverts then I insist you take this course to right your ways. Applies to agencies, internal and retained. You will be shocked at how narrow minded and arrogant what we write really is and learn to be like a human and not a bot. Be prepared to take criticism, they do not hold back and know what they are talking about. Mine were torn to shreds which was very refreshing and welcome. Want to argue? Don’t. Closest analogy would be telling Paul Hollywood how to bake bread. Listen, learn and adapt. I have learned more about adverts, human behaviour and stakeholder management (bonus) in 7 hours than almost 6 years’ in recruitment while also rediscovering my lost love for creative writing. Wish I had done this earlier in my career, some past roles could have ended differently.”

Thanks a million

Thanks to Mitch Sullivan & Jackie Barrie for improving my advert writing and talent attraction skills. Advert responses have gone up 1,000,000%* since your course with people saying that wonderful phrase ’I wasn’t really looking for a new job, but loved the way the company sounded in the advert’

*maybe a slight exaggeration, but it really is that good.

Traffic up 50%!
