Email Etiquette

Although all of us have sent emails, not everyone is aware of the etiquette. Here are some good practices for email etiquette to keep in mind:

  1. Use standard formatting and avoid special effects unless necessary
  2. Include a clear subject line
  3. Use professional language
  4. Introduce yourself first (when needed)
  5. Don’t use emojis
  6. Be cautious with “Reply All” (to avoid inundating a list of people with unnecessary emails)
  7. Proofread it and double-check attachments
