Check your Email
You should be getting an email momentarily with a quick welcome message about your subscription to my email series about interview prep tips.
It’s important that you click on the link in the email in order to double opt-in to receiving these messages. This is by design and on purpose. If you do not click the link in the message, you will not be subscribed.
Why a Double Opt-In?
I’m a strong believer in efficient email sending and following all CAN-SPAM laws. While CAN-SPAM laws don’t require a double opt-in, it’s an industry best-practice.
Your first opt-in stage was entering your email address. The second stage is clicking the link in the email to confirm my message made it to your Inbox and that you are indeed verifying that you want to get my interview tips by email.
How it Works
Approximately every 24 hours, a timed job will send the next message in the interview tips series to your email address.
A webhook set up with SendGrid will send me an alert when they successfully send the message to your Inbox. At this point, my system will advance your account to the next message in the series for tomorrow.
I may open-source this script at a later time.
When the Series has Run its Course
When you receive your last message, your email address will be purged from a database and you will not be contacted again for any reason.
As mentioned above, the system will automatically purge your information from my database when the series is complete. I don’t believe in re-marketing so I won’t use that information for anything else.
Also, if you fail to click the link in your registration email to full subscribe, the system will remove your email address within 48 hours. I also don’t believe in hanging onto data that serves no purpose and is a potential security problem.
