10 New Ways to Intro Your Email

  • email intros fb

 

Dear Fill-in-the-Name, 

This is to inform you that the above is the commonest email (and letter) opening in history. It's the safe choice ... but don't expect your reader to stay awake. 

 

If it's just a courtesy note, you don't need it to instigate immediate attention or action. But in a business setting, you quite often do. Try one of these 10 options for making a more memorable connection: 

 

1. Hi, Fill-in-the-Name 

Creates an informal conversation with people you know well. 

 

2. Good morning/afternoon 

Somewhat more formal. Also a good dodge if you don't know the name or gender of the person you're emailing. 

 

3. Just got your email 

Tells the recipient that you are making him/her your top priority. 

 

4. Here's the info you requested 

Gets high readership because it's something the recipient wants to know about. 

 

5. I have an update/news for you 

Communicates that the email contains must-see information. 

 

6Checking in 

For routine progress reports, or a tactful way to request one from others. 

 

7. Important/urgent/code blue/SOS 

Save this for occasions when you seriously need immediate attention or assistance.  

 

8. Mission accomplished 

Announces that your project or task is completed, the company's goal has been met, etc. 

 

9. Greetings and salutations 

A bit humorous, for when you want to get someone in a good mood. 

 

10. First, let me apologize 

For that email we all have to write sooner or later, to explain your mistake and proposed damage control.

How Do I Choose the Right Job for Me?
Whether you're just starting out in life, looking to make a career change or (lucky you!) trying to decide between multiple job offers, you may find the possibilities overwhelming. How do you figure out which job will best fit your skills, passion and personality? What if you aren't fully qualified for the job you want?   Here are some methods that may help you identify — and land — your perfect job.   Describe Your Ideal Job and Employer This is about more than your work duties. Write down a complete profile of the role and the corporate culture that will best fulfill your dreams.   Think about what you liked or didn't like about past jobs. What types of activities do you like best — group/team efforts or working by yourself; a structured routine or planning your own workflow; a hands-off boss or one that keeps an eye on everything; high pressure deadlines or a relaxed pace; tons of overtime or work-life balance? What duties did you most enjoy that you would like...

How Recruiting Will Change in Light of COVID-19
  If you’ve been on the internet in the past week, month, day, or half-hour, you’ve most likely seen some version of the headline, “How COVID-19 Will Permanently Alter [Insert Industry Here].”   And for a good reason. The pandemic has shined a light on the lack of a business continuity plan in many industries — including recruiting. The process of building teams is quickly evolving for countless companies, and this change is especially daunting for organizations that lack a flexible staffing strategy.   Whether trying to find temp workersor something a bit more permanent, recruiting and staffing won’t be the same once the pandemic subsides. What will it look like then?   1. It’ll be from a distance. Social distancing won’t just be a solution for decluttering restaurants and bars. Recruiting from a distance — and with the help of virtual technology — will be essential to any business continuity plan.   Much of the recruiting cycle (e.g., sourcing, interviewing, etc.)...

The New Post-Pandemic Company Culture
Many businesses haven't operated "normally" — if at all — for months. As we step out of lockdown and back into the workplace, what will be our new reality? What changes will be permanent? How can we smooth the transition for companies and workers alike?   Safety Practices The most visible changes will be to the physical space. New barriers, equipment, workflows and cleaning protocols will confront the returning worker. Businesses must keep up to date on the latest health and safety recommendations to help employees feel comfortable about being in the workplace.   Phasing In Employees may also have to get used to not seeing the usual crew. In order to limit the number of employees present at the same time, many companies are bringing workers back gradually, with the most essential (or those who volunteered) returning first.   Alternatively, some businesses are establishing staggered work times, or a weekly in/out rotation where some teams are in the office while other...
