At, we take email seriously and we are committed to getting your messages to the inbox. We use a state-the-art messaging service, which allows us to attain the highest delivery rates possible. Our system has been rigorously tested against all the popular services, such as Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, and AOL, and we have consistently achieved excellent delivery rates. Rest assured, we validate all employers’ email addresses at the time they sign-up. All email addresses are continuously checked and accounts for which emails become invalid are quarantined until they are updated or deleted. Moreover, our system is redundant. Even if an email address has gone bad, the employer can still view any messages you send by checking his/her inbox on our site. For best results, we ask that you follow the tips below:

Keep Your Messages Brief But Informative

When first contacting an employer, it is always best to be concise and to the point. Nobody wants to wade through a huge block of text to decide whether to make a hire. Besides, it is unlikely that you will close the deal based on your first email, so we recommend that you save all the finer details for your follow-up exchanges and stick to the most important facts in your initial inquiry. Don't be repetitive or provide a lot of extraneous information, and definitely don't include typos or misspelled words, as that can be a major turn-off.

Be Professional and Courteous

It's no secret that people like to be treated with respect and consideration. Keep in mind that many jobseekers are competing for the attention of the employers listed on this site. To separate yourself from the others, a kind and thoughtful message that acknowledges this basic reality can go a long way. It will also demonstrate that you are realistic and understand the job market.

Be Clear and Specific About Your Skills.

The biggest mistake you can make is to send a vague message that doesn't state your skills or qualifications. This is exactly the kind of email an employer is likely to ignore or delete. After all, it does not address why they are on the site in the first place. So please make sure that your initial email message describes what set of skills you are offering.

Don't Send The Same Message To Every Employer

Take the time to compose a message that reflects a employer's unique job offer. Sending an individualized message will increase the likelihood of a reply and reduce the chance of its being flagged as junk or spam.

Include a Phone Number If You Want Calls

If you want employers to be able to call you, be sure to include a valid phone number in the Phone Number field. If you want them to be able text you, use a cell phone number. If you don’t want calls or texts, leave the field blank.

Don't Use Rude, Hateful, Discriminatory or Obscene Language

Hopefully, we don't need to explain to you why this is a very bad idea. Number one, it certainly won't help in advancing your career goals. Number two, we'll be forced to terminate your account, as it is a violation of our Terms and Conditions.

Keep Track of Who You've Already Emailed

You definitely don't want to hound an employer. We suggest you allow a waiting period of at least 2-4 weeks before emailing an employer a second time.

Block Employers Who Send Spam or Annoy You

If you receive a message in your SexyJobs inbox that you feel is offensive or spam, you can block the employer from sending further messages by clicking the spam icon. If you receive an email notification that an employer has sent a message and you know you don't want further messages from this employer, you may click the link at the bottom of the message that says, "Block this employer from sending further messages." Please don't mark an email notification from SexyJobs as spam. If you do, you will not receive any further email from us, as we abide by email delivery best practices in order to maintain our reputation as a responsible sender.

Add to Your Whitelist

If you notice that a message coming from our site has landed in your junk folder, be sure to mark it as "not spam", so that the problem won't keep happening. We also highly recommend you add to your whitelist, if your email application has this option. That way you will be sure to receive all your email notifications from us.

Upgrade to a Gold Jobseeker Ad

You will certainly receive more exposure as a Gold Jobseeker. Moreover, many employers are swayed by a jobseekers who have upgraded to Gold status, as this indicates a commitment to finding work.
