When writing emails it is important to be as professional and respectful as possible. Working for The Elm, working an on or off campus job, and just being a college student in general requires you to write many emails to many different people. The Elm’s Editor in Chief, Emma Way’16, has put together a sample email for seeking an interview with someone. Even if you are not trying to interview someone it is a great example of how to be polite. Always say who you are, have a professional tone, thank whomever you are emailing, and have correct spelling. When people read well-written emails they are more likely to respond. Hopefully this Elm tip will help you to craft better emails!
