This is short and sweet.
My advice to you when making contact with a person is to show you have read their profile blurb. One of the best introductions I ever got read:
“I hope the piles of corrections are but a memory and that you survived this hectic season for teachers!
Enjoy the Xmas season”
Signed by the man
That simple message showed he had read my profile, found something that we shared and was able to introduce himself in that manner. It wasn’t too wordy and did not focus on himself but on what we had in common.
That message turned into a string of really beautiful emails and meetings.
So very simply, keep it short and find something in their blurb that you can comment on!
