Read Receipts

Think twice before selecting the read receipt notification option in your e-mail program. Some readers may be offended that you do not trust them to open their e-mail. If you want to ensure your message is received and read, call the recipient with a heads-up that your electronic message has been sent.

Write a Networking E-Mail

Draft a one-page e-mail message, complete with a powerful subject line. Your message and subject line should move you a step closer to your primary networking or career goal. It could be, for example, a cover letter with a resume attached, an invitation to attend an industry event, a letter of introduction. Be sure to incorporate white space and visual cues to ensure your message is opened, read, and acted upon by the reader.
