Know your email etiquette

Think twice before hitting that send button! Does your email follow these professional guidelines?

Are you using an appropriate email address? Perhaps it’s time to upgrade your email address from “funkychick@hotmail” to something that reflects your professional self.

Make sure the subject line clearly states the purpose of your email. This could mean the difference between the recipient choosing to open or dismiss your email.

Write clearly. Use bullet points to make your points concise and don’t use ’text speak’.

Proofread! Read your email out loud before sending and don’t rely on spell check to pick up mistakes.

Be careful when selecting reply and ensure you send your email to the right person. No one wants to read an email that has nothing to do with them because someone accidently clicked ‘reply all’.
