Also posted this in the "did emailing principals get you an interview?" thread, but figured I'd probably get more of a response starting a thread of my own, so. As always, TIA - I don't know what I'd do without this board! For those who have sent out several emails to principals, what's the trick to being so prolific with your messages? I truly don't understand how people are legitimately coming up with figures like "30 letters yesterday!" or "67 emails in the past 24 hours!" I think I have a pretty good framework for my letters, but in order to work in why I'm a good fit and what about a school impresses me, I feel like it's important to spend a certain amount of time doing research and thoughtfully wording a personalized message. I just sent out two emails to a school - one to the principal, the other to the department chair (they were not carbon copies of one another) - and it took me something like an hour to produce a polished version of each. What do I need to do to become more efficient at writing these? Please feel free to throw any ideas and suggestions you have at me!
