Email Etiquette for Job Seekers

Etiquette does matter in your job search! And because so much of the application process is done online, you should brush up on your email etiquette. Put to use these tips on the art of communicating by email from Careerealism​.

Spell Check – This may seem like common sense but don't forget to check your grammar and spelling.

Get Rid of The Old Email Address – Your email address should match your maturity and not be something from your childhood. An email address with your name in it immediately shows the recruiter who you are.
