Netiquette Basics For The Job Application Process with Foreign Companies, Languages and Cultures


The Job Application Process with Foreign Companies, Languages and Cultures

The following is an excerpt from my soon to be published book " You're Hired, Super Charge Your Email Skills In 60 Minutes! (And Get That Job . . . )"  Look for an announcement here in August."No two languages are ever sufficiently similar to be considered as representing the same social reality.

"The worlds in which different societies are distinct, not merely the same world with different labels attached"
—Edward Sapir

I have reiterated in my books, something we have all directly experienced, the importance of recognizing the subtleties of communicating by email. When you communicate with someone from a different culture, region, country, or other demographic, effective communications becomes even more challenging.
More than ever, the world’s workforce is globalizing. It is commonplace for hiring processes to be located between or even among continents. Netiquette becomes even more critical in situations such as these. To address the differences in Netiquette for each major country is beyond the scope of this book, but here are some key principles and actions that need to be part of your Netiquette practices:
=====================================================
1.   Never make assumptions (I know I keep saying this but it’s true).
2.   Emails should be simple in every aspect.
3.   Take appropriate time to learn about key issues in a company’s culture especially if the company is overseas or conducts a large part of its business internationally.
4.   Pay particular attention to salutations and closings.
5.   Pay attention to time differences and plan to send emails accordingly.

Good luck and good Netiquette to all!
