It makes a great first impression! Companies already know you're actively looking for a role if you're on FastTrack, but a personalized message helps draw their attention even more. Companies are looking for engineers who are specifically enthusiastic about their company. A message creates a human connection and can be a strong signal to companies that you're serious about engaging with them.
That being said, we do not recommend copying/pasting the same message to the same company for many roles. Sending one-size-fits-all messages about roles you aren't particularly qualified for or especially interested in may suggest that you don’t know what you want or don’t have strong interest in any one engineering discipline.
If you have additional questions, please contact FastTrack Support.
