We communicate through a variety of mediums today, each time, painting a picture of who we are. Sometimes it’s accurate, sometimes it’s not. If you’re going to take the time to communicate with someone, regardless of whether they are an employer, employee, client, prospect or any other type of contact, be sure to take the time to communicate effectively and professionally. I can’t tell you how many times each day I see an email with no regard for spelling, grammar or punctuation, and each time, my reaction is the same. If someone isn’t willing to put in the effort to compose a proper email, what on earth would make me think that they would put any more effort into anything else? Nothing, so I move on. What does your communication say about you?
