Accountant Email Etiquette Tips
- Always attach your resume and cover letter in separate PDFs. Sometimes Word Documents look different on different computers.
- Proofread and then proofread again. Depending on the importance of the recipient, have a friend proofread it.
- "BCC" stands for blind carbon copy. If you feel like bcc'ing someone, don't. Forward the email after it's already been sent. Too many mistakes have happened there.
- Keep your message concise. You need to include a story connecting you to the recipient, but keep it short and sweet.
- Remember, this email could be forwarded to anyone (and often times is forwarded). Don't say anything you're not okay with everyone at the company seeing.
- Keep the tone upbeat. In email, it's hard to read someone's "tone". Better to throw in an exclamation point than to seem dull!
- If they said to give them a call, don't send an email. Email should never be an escape from more intimate contact, especially during the recruitment process.
- Never use all caps. If you haven't noticed, people interpret that as screaming.
