Withrepparttar advent ofrepparttar 102120 Internet, many of us haverepparttar 102121 opportunity to apply for work through email.

However, just because this isrepparttar 102122 Internet and email is so fast and convenient, that does NOT mean you should give up professionalism and polish!

FIRST IMPRESSIONS COUNT. I recently looked over a few emailed applications, and let me tell you, it was an eye-opening experience! Here are a few examples of how *not* to do things ...

* One person simply forwardedrepparttar 102123 job description torepparttar 102124 hiring company. There was no explanatory letter, no name (just some garbled email address), no nothing. Why should a company want to hire someone who can't be bothered to make an effort?

* Several people gotrepparttar 102125 name ofrepparttar 102126 hiring party wrong. Some misspelled it, others substituted someone else's name.

* Spelling mistakes, typos, grammatical errors, and formatting problems like you wouldn't believe. One person said that her greatest strength was her attention to 'detal' (should have been 'DETAIL'); another said it was his responsibility to 'a tent to customers' ('ATTEND to customers').

It almost goes without saying that you should always followrepparttar 102127 application instructions provided. If you're inquiring or applying for a job - regardless of whether it's online or inrepparttar 102128 'real world' - there are certain rules of etiquette that apply:

__1. GREET THE PERSON. Don't just barge in and start writing. A simple "Dear ___" is great.

__2. CORRECTLY SPELL THE COMPANY NAME AND THAT OF THE HIRING MANAGER. If you don't know how to spell them, take a few seconds and find out.
