As a recruiter and a career coach, I receive hundreds of emails with attached resumes from executives every week. Not a day goes by when someone sends me an email with several errors, omissions and glaring mistakes. Here are 16 tips to consider when corresponding with people in your network and the hiring authority managers in the companies you have targeted.
1. Use a concise and informative subject line. It helps people prioritize their mail. Example: Introduction: Your Name or Following up to our 2/4 networking meeting
2. Make sure your email and your PC’s email software have the right date and time.
