1. The email subject is the first thing we see and it creates the first impact;
2. If the employer requests a specific code or name to put in the subject, do it;
3. Never leave the subject field empty;
4. Writing “application” is very generic. Try to write something like “Application for HR manager” or “Application for Google”;
5. You should avoid to only write your name, because it can be misunderstood by the employer;
6. Be creative. That one we found was a good example and it stood out: “I want to be your next Professional Resume Writer”;
7. Avoid to write completely different roles. If you’re applying for a Writer don’t say you’re applying for a “Consultant” position;
8. We also found some grammar and spelling errors! Not in the resume, in the email subject! Avoid that!
9. Stating the name of the job search website is not a good strategy because the employer can have more than one offer running at the same time;
10. Keep it short, smart and simple!
