1. Email Sender Name:
Set your email display name to show your full name.
The added benefit of displaying a clear sender name is that your contact information will be properly filed by the recipient's automatic contacts sorter.
2. Subject Line:
Keep your subject line clear and to the point.
Include keywords in your subject line that match the content of your message; this will make it easier for the employer to sort your message and find it again later using the search feature.
