How to write a good subject heading for job application?

by 2 comments
I'm trying to think of a good email subject for a high frequency trading job that I'm applying for. How could I make my email subject field stand out? I don't just want to call it "job application"? Copywriters are supposed to be the best at writing these sort of things...

      Depends what you have about you that you can sell.

      If I'm sorting through emailed job apps, and see...

      ...I know what I'm looking at first.

      Obviously, a couple caveats apply.

      1 - I'm a copywriter and internet marketer, not a trading firm. I'm drawn to flash. Those guys are probably conservative, and while you may get looked at first, you may also turn them off entirely.

      2 - I have no idea what kind of numbers mean what, so you'd have to judge for yourself if something was both relevant to you AND impressive to them.

      But still, if you want to get opened, AND you feel you have the creative freedom to play with your subject heading, you need to think about what is IMPRESSIVE about you, and will sound GOOD to them...preferably something that sets you APART.

      - volumes you've dealt with
      - profits you've earned
      - credentials you possess
      - educational background
      - experience you've built up
      - hard knocks places you've earned your stripes
      - etc.

      Who are you, that makes a subject heading ABOUT you worth opening first? Answer that, and the rest becomes simple.

    Hello, I've been around a bit looking for ways to make money online and I've been sucked into the MLM business which you join and then you have to get others to join by telling them how much money you make. After looking at that its not for me. So what can I do to make money?

    For some reason I'm not able to rank for the target keyword. Its going on two weeks since the site launched. My on page seo is good, I bought 20 local citations, and 1 high tf/cf PBN link and have my profiles with my link on facebook and twitter. My highest competitor ranked #1 has 0tf/19cf and my site according to Majestic is 0tf/13cf and my link from a pbn hasn't even indexed yet. according to that , I should be on at least the first page right? Surely I'd be ranking somewhere in the top 50 I'd think. When I do site:mywebsite on google it shows that all my pages are indexed. Another thing I'm confused about is, I'm ranked 31 for a terrible version of the keyword I was targeting. My niche is carpet cleaning in a small city in texas. the keyword I'm ranking for is carpet cleaning companies "city name" in "city name".. nobody is strait up searching for that... I want to be ranked carpet cleaning "city name" so I can start making money. Anyone have any ideas of what might be going on?
