Q: What’s a good subject line for a job search email?
A: To attract the recipient’s attention, you could use a subject line like Follow Up: Professional Opportunity. Or simply: Professional Matter. If someone suggested you contact the person, include a name in the subject line, such as Contacting you at __________’s suggestion. Or relay the commonality you share, such as Fellow Law School Alum Getting in Touch.
Other ideas: think about giving the subject line a light touch, e.g., A quick career question. Or, indicate that the reader’s attention is needed , such as with a subject line like: Professional matter; your attention requested.
There are a number of good choices. One bad option is to leave the subject line blank.
