Transcript:Quick Tip: Writing Email Subject Lines
In this video, you will receive tips for writing email subject lines. Email subject lines are designed to communicate clear, pertinent information to the email's recipient. A successful subject line will be a concise expression of the message's main point.
Keep Email Subject Concise and Descriptive
When writing a subject line, avoid quirky, mysterious headlines. Instead, think of the subject line as the thesis statement of your message. Leave out needless descriptive words, unnecessary articles, and personal greetings.
It's important to let the reader know right away in the subject line whether the email requires a response from the recipient.
Include Only Pertinent Information
If you're applying for a job, make sure to include the most pertinent information, such as the position, your name, and the name of the person who referred you.
