When you are using email to job search, it's important that all your communications are as professional as they would be if you were writing an old-fashioned paper letter.
Your email messages need to be properly formatted, you need to spell correctly, and it's important write in paragraphs. Even though it's email (or a LinkedIn message) when you're corresponding regarding employment, you need to write carefully and properly.
It's also important to include a targeted Subject Line and a Signature, so it's easy for hiring managers and recruiters to get in touch with you. Don't forget the basics, as well. Hotbabe@anywhere.com or anything similar is not a good email address, obviously, to use when you're job hunting. Instead, get a dedicated (and free) email account to use just for your job search.
Here's information on what to include in your job search emails, how to format your email, and how to make sure your email message is read.
