An Open Letter to the People who have Emailed Me Recently (March 2, 2019)

Dear Sender(s),

Greetings and I hope that this reaches you well.  I know that you have probably emailed me with the intention of conducting a survey, interview, or maybe even to discuss matters pertaining to your practicum or internship.

Now, I understand that it is the 21st century and electronic mail is an acceptable medium to convey your request.  However, simply sending a generic message (which, at times, I’ve also noticed is carbon copied to several of your other prospects) or–worse yet–a forwarded message with neither a subject line nor email body can be, well, quite unappealing.

Sender, always remember that when you send these kinds of requests to professionals, you are also trying to make a good first impression with the hope that it may lead to your desired request.  Sending emails in the manner that I have described earlier simply shows me that you think very little of my time–our time.

So don’t be surprised if you do not receive too many responses.

I wish you well in your future endeavours.

Sincerely,

Dr. Tedi Gustilo Villasor
