Email Rules of Do’s 👍🏽 and Don’ts 👎🏽

 

  • Type the email message FIRST.

    • BEFORE adding any email address to prevent sending it too early by mistake.

  • Use a clear, direct subject line.

    • Examples are “Job Application” or “My New Job!” or “Upcoming Interview”.

    • Never use personal email addresses such as “babylove@…” or “bigdaddy@…”.

    • >>> Get a new FREE Gmail address with your name | your.name@gmail.com.

  • Use professional greetings and closings.

    • Do not use laid-back, phrases like, “Hey guys,” “Yo,” or “Hi folks.”

    • Use “Hello or Good Morning” to begin and “Thank you,” or “Sincerely,” to end.

  • Rarely use exclamation points, if ever!

    • If used, never use more than one!!!

  • Never use smileys or causal emoticons. ;-(

  • Be cautious with humor in email.

    • Save it for the right time in the interview – only if appropriate.

    • People from different cultures speak and write differently.

    • Miscommunication can occur because of cultural differences.
