Not posted the blog in a while but we have just received the e-mail above and we HAD to share it!
This is the type of shit that gets you noticed.
Not too lengthy and not too short (sometimes we get e-mails as short as...'Got any placements?') DELETE.
Make a bit of effort in what you're writing. Be different. Don't just expect people to want to read what you send. Make them enjoy it. It's a piece of work in itself to capture someone's attention. Once you've done that, you can show them your work. Personality is key.
Creative agencies receive hundreds of e-mails a week from students and people looking for a job. What will make you different. Great work isn't worth anything if no-one looks at it.
Get Noticed in everything you do. Starting with that very first e-mail. Remember first impressions count.
