As I am working on drafts here are some Professional Practices for everything! in general.
- Put page numbers on things.
- Put your name and any reference numbers (you have with the organization /establishment you are writing to. It is a reference number so they are using it to track you like your name.)
- Explain what things are when you give them to people.
- For sending files on-line name the file something that indicates what it is for the person you are sending it to (not for yourself). You may have only one 'Acting CV' but the person getting the file is clearly going to be getting more than one. So name it 'Your_name CV'. Yes, you know your own name but the file name is for their organization not yours.
- Don't turn up to things or send people things expecting someone to sort them out for you. Work out what you have to do and do it. If you are unsure explain what you think you have to do so people know where you are coming from when you do it and then they can feedback what is needed if you have got the wrong end of the stick. But if you don't commit to something 'right' or 'wrong' the thing that comes across is not if it is 'right' or 'wrong'. The thing that comes across is the lack of commitment you had to it.
