Whenever you communicate with an employer about a job, think about how you might sound from the other person's point of view, Judi Perkins writes. For example, provide some information about yourself to jog the person's memory about who you are. Job seekers often "behave as if the person they’re [e-mailing] doesn’t [e-mail] with anyone else or has been sitting at their desk, waiting for this particular [e-mail]," Perkins writes.
