Unformatted text preview: How to Write a Professional Email WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD As a college student, it is VERY important that you present your best digital image by learning the correct way to write a professional email. A professor, a potential employer, or a prospective internship contact may decide if she or he is willing to help you based on the way you present yourself via email.

Some professors do not want you to address them by their first names. Always be more formal until you find out what the person wants you to call them. -> No "Hey, Sunny" — it’s not professional Message: When you write your message do not use text abbreviations like ”u" for "you” or a lower case ”i" instead of ”I" — again, it is not professional.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
