Reference Check opener email work

A template for initiating a reference check.

Hi $NAME,

$CANDIDATE_NAME listed you as a reference and I was hoping to have a call to hear your perspective on $PRONOUN. We are far long in our vetting process for $PRONOUN as a $POSITION and $PRONOUN appears to be a great fit.

I know your time is valuable and I'm hoping to touch base in the next few days so here is my availability in that window:

$CALENDLY_LINK

If any of that works, please book a slot and I will call you then. If none of those slots work, please suggest some windows that work for you. I am also available off-hours if that works better for you.

I have $PHONE_NUMBER, is that the best number to reach you?

Thanks and I look forward to chatting with you!

Best,
Michael
