    Don’t Hit Send Yet
    Many of us connect with our coworkers and higher-ups through email more than we actually speak to them face-to-face. In fact, for every job I’ve had as a writer and editor, I’ve communicated with my colleagues almost exclusively over chat and email. (At one office, I would literally Gchat someone who sat facing me.)

    Given the lack of verbal cues in writing, this creates a huge potential for misunderstandings. (Too bad we can’t rely on emoji at work.)

    Whether you're emailing that you're out sick, sending meeting invites, or — gasp — you mistakenly replied all on a message meant for your work BFF, handle yourself like a pro.

    Here’s a simple guide to office email etiquette.
