When sending out networking emails I always have trouble coming up with subject lines. I've been using "John Doe - Interest in ABC" "Happy Holidays" "Nice to meet you!"

What creative/catchy subject lines have you found effective to capture the attention of busy employers that are still reasonably professional?

Just put "Harvard Student" or whatever. That's what I do if you're from the alma mater.

I'm talking about liquid. Rich enough to have your own jet. Rich enough not to waste time. Fifty, a hundred million dollars, buddy. A player. Or nothing.

What about for people you've met at information sessions or if someone puts you in touch with their friend/colleague?


I usually go with "post session - point of inquiry" or something along those lines. Or if the contact is someone I have met multiple times, then just "point of inquiry/interest"


"post session - point of inquiry" this sounds a little too formal

Wow looking at this I feel like the most uncreative person ever.

I just write "Thank You - from Insert Name"

I mean, I know it's supposed to be catchy, but i really can't think of anything...

I don't accept sacrifices and I don't make them. ... If ever the pleasure of one has to be bought by the pain of the other, there better be no trade at all. A trade by which one gains and the other loses is a fraud.
