Avoid These 8 Overused Email Expressions to Get a Job Interview

We’ve all received emails that are filled with cliched work phrases. And we probably roll our eyes and move on. But we ourselves are often guilty of using them, too.


When you’re trying to land an interview, it’s especially important to avoid overused phrases in your email.


Here are eight common email phrases to nix from your vocabulary and alternatives to try instead.


1. “As per my last email”

Yes, you want to remind the interviewer that you have previously communicated on this topic, but this is a little abrupt.

2. “To Whom It May Concern”

Hiring managers and recruiters prefer a personalized approach.

3. “Just letting you know”

“Just” is an overused word in emails, one women, in particular, employ far too often. 

4. “Just checking in”

Again, JUST stop saying JUST. You want to sound breezy, but if this is important to you, then you shouldn’t downplay the importance of your message.
