Business Etiquette. Thank Y ou L etters and Email. What is etiquette?. Before you do something ask yourself, "What is the kindest way to do this ?” Etiquette should flow out of a gracious and kind heart and not be rigidly followed like a set of commandments .
Thank You Letters and Email
Dear Mrs. Smith:
I received your name from, John Dean, your employee and a long time friend of my family. I am an eleventh grade student at Garnet Valley High School. As part of my Career Development class, I am required to job shadow someone in a field that I might like to enter after college graduation. I am contacting you to ask if you might have the time and willingness to allow me to come to your office and watch you work. As part of the day, I also have some short questions to ask you about your field and work place in general. I am available at your convenience. I look forward to your reply and thank you for your attention.
Dear Mrs. Perry,
I am writing to introduce myself to you. I am a member of your second period ACE Career Development Class. We are learning about email etiquette, so I wanted to show you that I understood your entire lesson. I look forward to class next week!
Example: Sincerely, Jane Doe
