Tips

  1. If you don't know the person's name when writing a formal email, you can start it Dear Sir/Madam.
  2. Your email should have three short main paragraphs:
    1. What you are interested in
    2. Why you're interested
    3. Any questions you have.
  3. I look forward to hearing from you is a good way to close an email if you want a reply.
  4. Regards is a semi-formal, respectful way to end an email. It is common in professional emails too.
