Writing the Perfect Email

Nowadays, we’re so used to texting, Facebook chatting, and abbreviating everything under the sun that composing a proper email becomes a daunting task. HerCampus posted a great article about composing a professional email. Take a peek at some of their tips and check it out before you accidentally include “lol” in the next email to your professor.

  • PROOFREAD! I credit my sister for making me a your/you’re correcting machine (*cough* grammar police *cough*). However, even small typos can make it hard for the reader to take what you’re saying seriously.
  • Introduction: Bring in your reader and make them want to continue reading. Explain what you’re writing about before going into more detail. Always refer to him/her as Mr./Ms., until they tell you otherwise.
  • Always say thank you and include a closing. “Sincerely” is usually a safe sign-off,  but other formal exits may work.
  • Answer your emails promptly! Nobody wants to be waiting around for your response.
