Have you ever received an email that is written in a non-professional tone? To be honest, it’s hard to take that email serious if it isn’t written with professional etiquette. Here is what employers say about writing professional etiquette emails.
1. No professional email address, no job for you.
- Lilragamuffin@ and workhardforthe$@ just doesn’t work. Literally, they probably aren’t working if they’re using that email address.
- Brand your email address after your name or your website.
- What does your email say about you?
2. Make sure your name populates when sending an email from your phone.
3. No signature or no name. Employers response….DELETE.
- Employers need to know: Your Name, Title, Contact Info
- Don’t forget to add a signature to your response email settings too.
4. Do not write in all CAPITALS. If you yell at someone, you can expect someone to yell back at you.
5. Do not write an email in a casual, text message or tweet tone.
- Write in complete sentences and correct grammar.
- No text acronyms or slang i.e. LOL, goin’, Hey, etc.
- A simple “Yes” response tells employers that you haven’t taken the time to write a professional and articulate email.
6. Respond to all questions and subjects in the email
- This is a true sign of your ability to pay attention to details. If you write it on your resume, make sure its true.
