Subject is mandatory (Title)
Never send a blank Email (Always include your Name & Rank). Never send a blank Email (Always include your Name & Rank). This is so important!
Write clear and concise
Write clear and concise Subject within few words. Give a fast hint to the Recruiter for what vacancy you are applying for. Don't write ``I want to apply for any job available for me``.
Write the name of the person
Write the name of the person or company with 1st letter Capital. Make your message more personal. Don't forget the Recruiter is a human, not a robot.
Install your email app on your phone. Timing is gold! Don't reply on emails ``when you get home``. Recruiters can select other candidates in the meantime.
Create an email signature
More often than you think, your attachment might not open. Let recruiters contact you easily from your signature (Name, Rank, Location, Phone, Email & Skype)
Rename your documents
Instead of Photo 1, Photo 2 and so on you can rename your documents in ``CV Captain George Donovan``, ``BST``, ``Security Awareness``, ``Medical``, ``Endorsement``, ``Seaman Book``, ``Passport``.... Don't let recruiters search through all your papers!
