Many people introduce themselves without being aware of the importance of making a good introduction. By being aware of the advantages of making a good introduction you become more enthusiastic about your introduction and this leads to more interesting and rewarding encounters. Here are the reasons why we should make a good effort at our own introduction:
Job interviews usually require you to introduce yourself at least once. With a bit of preparation and practice you can have the art mastered so that you introduce yourself with ease and highlight how suitable you are for the job.
Introducing yourself to one colleague using an email is relative easy. The biggest problem is ensuring that your email is not ignored. To improve your chances of getting a response keep your email to the point and try and highlight what you need and what you can offer. The more important and professional you sound, the more likely you are to get a response.
