Subject: Why Subject?
A dear reader of The Intern 247 emailed me recently asking about the format of this site. I like inquisitive minds and thought... she can't be alone so lets answer it in a post.
She wanted to know why I start every post with Subject: and end it Kind regards, and then whoever wrote the piece (normally me, Avery or Erin)
Well... lovely reader who I won't name names.
It's an email format, quite obvious now you know right. One of the first things I can remember learning about the world of work/interning/being professional/ being an adult was how to write an email or a letter. Back then the norm was letter writing, so I mainly learnt about the format of a letter, but you know its 2016 and I only now receive letters from my dear Nan.
Being an intern you send out maybe 20-30 emails a day, having your own email as an intern is a big deal if you're not under info@ or intern@ or anything that's not generic it's a big deal... at least it was to me.
So I thought when I started this website it would be nice to have a format. Like you all were receiving an email for me every now and then.
Is that lame? Maybe it is. But it's stuck now... so get use to it.
