  • My great-grandmother taught me the importance of sending a thank you note when I received a gift. In the age of the internet, a hand written note is a much more personal and shows the giver that you truly appreciate the thought.

  • ALWAYS use spell check, and if you aren't sure about something you have written, ask someone who is good with grammar to proofread it for you. It automatically makes you look dumber than you are when you misspell words in professional communications. (It's ETIQUETTE, not ettiquette, and WERE, not where.)
