Here are 4 quick & easy tips on how to write a professional message on your JOB TODAY app.

Review the job post

This is your moment.

This is what you’ve been waiting for.

Seize the opportunity to present yourself and highlight your true talents. Review the job post and tailor your message to the employer accordingly. Let your potential recruiter know how your skill set will make you an excellent fit for the advertised role. Is blending exotic cocktails and customer service your forte? Offer to make them their favourite drink!

You’re wonderful the way you are, no need to make mistakes on your resume or embellish your experience in your messages. You don’t want to know what happens after you lie on your resume. 😄

Begin with a polite greeting

Whenever you ping an employer on JOB TODAY (or on any other instant messaging platform), start your conversation with a polite “Hello” or “Hi”.

You’re smart 😀 you already know that stating upfront that you’ve applied for their job won’t create the best first impression. After saying “Hello”, go ahead and ask them how they’re doing.

Don’t stop here now mate, keep a respectful tone of voice throughout your message😊 Always!

Let’s build that rapport, shall we?

Use full sentences

Sure, when you’re chatting with a buddy on Whatsapp, be as informal as you like. Feel free to use all sorts of colloquial abbreviations and phrases.

This won’t work on JOB TODAY.

Your hiring manager doesn’t know you – yet (they soon will!). Whilst writing your message to them, use full and complete sentences so as to show them that you’re an ace at professional communication😎.  

Proof-read your message

Want to start off on the right note with your future manager?

Here’s a little trick: Before you press the “Send” button, go back and read what you’ve written again.

Check for correct spellings, use of punctuation and grammar. Don’t forget to capitalize your letters and add full stops at the end of your sentences. Paying attention to such tiny yet important things can make a world of a difference.

You’re going to nail that job!
