Dear dear applicant,
When applying for a job kindly please note the following (and mind you, I’m not even HR):
- Please… for the love of God… PUH-LEASE take the time to create an e-mail id for yourself that is some formal variation of your name. I can’t take anymore of the casual/funky/cool e-mail ids of the world!
- Don’t assume you know me! You don’t! There is no credit here… you don’t get to send me an excessively casual friendly e-mail asking about life, calling me honey and oh btw have your CV in there somewhere!!
- I don’t care much for cover letters, but even if this is my private e-mail and even if you know about this vacancy through friends, please have a little courtesy and take the time to write something, anything, in the body of the e-mail in which you’ve attached the CV. Don’t give me the impression that you are Frisbee free-style tossing the document in my direction!!
A potential boss!
