When you're sending an inquiry about a job or applying for a job, or writing other professional correspondence, it's important to format your email as professionally as you would any other business letter. After all, everyone—recruiters and hiring managers included—receives a lot of emails. Make sure that your emails stand out because of the content, and not because of sloppy mistakes, poor formatting, or overly casual language. Use a readable font in a 10 or 12 point size in your emails. Send job search-related emails from a professional email address. Ideally, your email address should include some combination of your first and last name or first initial and last name.
