An Email and a Lesson

By, 11/29/2012

Hello,

On the job, you’ll notice email plays a large role in office communication. Learning how to write a professional email is key, as a poorly written email can detract from your message. Here are some quick pointers:

-Bullet points can be easier to process than paragraphs.

-Sentences should be short and clear.

-Repetition is rarely necessary.

-Keep the tone friendly, but polite, please.

-Readers prefer correct punctuation and grammar—so do employers.

If you mind the above items next time you email in the office, reception of your message may improve.

Cheers,

M.H.
