Its so easy to delete an email even before reading it.
So how do you get the person hiring to actually open and read your email? These crucial tips will make the recruiter want to read your email.
Use a catchy subject line
Include the exact international teaching position you are applying for and your name as well. Make it as catchy as you can so that it catches the recruiter’s eye. This makes the recruiter curious and he/she is able to go ahead and open your email.
Do not use emoticons

Avoid the urge to tag it as a high priority email
Although an international job search may be your high priority, it may not be the same for the recruiter. Actually, tagging your email as high priority may work against you. This is a sure way to send your email to the trash bin before its read.
Do not shout to the recruiter
Using capital letters and lots of exclamation marks is rude. When you continuously use them in your application letter, the recruiter will read it as though you are shouting to them.
Make sure all words are correctly spelled
If you decide to include the recruiters name or the name of the international school in Bangkok, make sure the spelling is correct. It will be an insult to the recruiter or the international school when you misspell their names, use an incorrect gender, or failure to do proper research on the exact name of the international school.
Keep the sentences short
