E-mail subject line that will catch the Employer’s attention

With hundreds of thousands of business emails that a certain company is receiving every single day don’t let your resume be tag as a spam, let it be noticed and catch the attention of the HR Manager or the Recruiter through your email subject line.

As an applicant looking for a job you must know how and you have to make sure that a prospective Employer, the HR Manager or the Recruiter clicks on your message. E-mail is considered the first point of contact between the Employer, the HR Manager or the Recruiter and the candidate this is where the subject line of your e-mail is very essential, it is giving you a chance to have your first conversation with them and as a platform to show off your skillset and qualifications.

Give importance to your subject line

-          Most of us, subject line in e-mail is not that important instead we are thinking that it is the body of that e-mail is the most essential. However, if you will not give importance to your subject line how will you capture the Employer, the HR Manager or the Recruiter’s interest to click and read your message or e-mail if they are no longer interested in your subject line in the first place.

Keep it simple and really short

-          The common e-mail inbox contains and conceal about 60 characters of an e-mail’s subject line, while on the other hand, a mobile with email application can only reveal just 25 to 30 characters maximum. So if you want the Employer, the HR Manager or the Recruiter to have a look at your message or e-mail make sure that you will in to the point and put the shortest yet informative subject e-mail line that you could think of.

Make it clear and understandable

-          Employer, the HR Manager or the Recruiter usually spends a couple of seconds to each resume to check if this certain applicant has the qualifications that they are looking for or for which position is the applicant looking for, number of years of experience etc. make sure that you will include all the essential information on your subject line to communicate and somehow introducing yourself through your subject line to the Employer, the HR Manager or the Recruiter in the simplest and shortest yet in a very understandable way.

Never use filler words to your subject line

-          As mentioned above revealing number of characters in the e-mail subject line are very limited to mobile e-mail application compare to typical e-mail inbox. Nowadays, mobile phones are taking over the personal computer or laptop – studies says that over 60% of the population preferred to communicate in their mobile phones compare to laptop or personal computer and one of the reasons why they prefer to use the mobile phone is that it is handy and through this generation’s technology there is nothing that your mobile phone can’t do.

-          Again, make sure that your subject line is as clear as the sky – every space counts!
