Having sent an application to your boss or the head of your educational institute, it is imperative that you follow up on the email or the letter, just to make sure that you and the recipient are on the same page.
Just like the application, the follow up email should be written using extremely professional language, avoiding any kind of grammatical errors or spelling mistakes, which are likely to leave a bad impression on the recipient.
In the first paragraph of the email, you must remind the recipient about the email you had sent earlier, and the purpose of the application.
Mention the reasons in detail in the body of the email, and attach any relevant certificates or documents that might be required.
In the concluding paragraph of the email, you should politely request the recipient, once again, to furnish you with a swift reply. Do not forget to thank him or her at the end.
The tone of your writing must be very polite and respectful throughout the email.
