How to Write a Job Application Email

Email Etiquette

There are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to email etiquette. First and foremost, make sure that you use a professional sounding email address. Your username should not be something like "partygirl123" or "ilovepizza." It should be your name or some variation thereof. For example, "jane.smith" or "janesmith123."

It is also important to use a professional sounding subject line. Something like "Job Application for [position]" is appropriate. You want the recipient to know what the email is about as soon as they see the subject line.

Finally, make sure that your signature includes your name, phone number, and email address. You want the recipient to be able to easily contact you if they have any questions or would like to schedule an interview.


Writing Tips

Now that we have covered email etiquette, let's move on to writing tips. First and foremost, make sure that your email is concise. The recipient does not have time to read a novel; they just want to know why you are the best candidate for the job. Get to the point!

It is also important to proofread your email before sending it. This may seem like a no-brainer, but you would be surprised how many people send out emails with typos and grammatical errors. Take the time to proofread your email so that you appear polished and professional.

Finally, do not forget to attach your resume! Many people make this mistake and it can cost them the job opportunity. Make sure that your resume is saved as a PDF so that it cannot be altered by the recipient and attach it to your email before hitting send.


A well-written job application email is essential for landing an interview. Keep these tips in mind when crafting your own job application emails and you will be sure to impress potential employers!
