As a job seeker, or any professional looking to be more effective and get more useful responses, become easy to help by doing the following:
Tip 1
Send concise, targeted emails. When you include attachments, links, articles or eight paragraphs to review, chances are you’ll receive a delayed response, or possibly none at all. Further, what you include in the email subject line may determine if your message is opened or simply deleted, so use that space wisely (e.g., “Referred by Jerry Petri; Speaker Request for January 4th”). But perhaps most importantly, first determine if an email is even the best medium to use for the request. It’s possible a quick conversation could save a lot of time. Key point: Make it easy for someone to promptly respond (remember, they may be reading your message on a mobile device).
