In this day and age of smart phones, texting and emailing on the fly, I know it is hard to maintain proper use of the english language.
Can we all agree when emailing a recruiter (or creative director, or HR person, or fill in the blank-person who might give you a job) it is a good idea to communicate as best you can?
Which means spelling out the word "you", not using U. As in, "I'd love to send u my book."
Really? You are trying to get a JOB here, not pass me a note in history class.
The email that precedes someone reviewing your portfolio is in fact one of the most important emails you'll ever type. Take a few minutes, spell out the long words, proofread, show some personality, be succinct and then send.
Your future career will thank you.
