1. May I ask a quick question?
There is nothing called a quick question
2. Could I pick your brain?
A sentence that doesn’t mean anything
3. Can you help me find a job?
No – no one can. Instead, ask if they can help you on how to search for opportunities or to prepare for them
4. Can we grab coffee/jump on a call?
That is lack of respect for the other person’s time
5. What do you think I should do?
Why will they know? They do not even know you!
Cold emailing remains one of the most under-rated skills in the world. If you know how to write one, you can create opportunities at will!
