  • Address the responsible HR officer personally (not “Dear Sir or Madam” but rather “Dear Ms. Ernoult”, for example).
  • Write one or two concise subject lines, no more than that. (You will find further hints and examples in the documents linked below.)

- Aggressive introduction: “You are looking for a systems engineer; you will not find anyone better than me”;
