Hello everyone! Welcome to E-mail Picks.
I've been working on a whole new project
lately and I'm doing a lot of research
on the internet. So I'm looking at
different countries to see what their
GDP growth rates are - like what people's
lives are like - things like that. When I
do research, I always look for academic
research papers. They are long and
difficult to understand - yes - but that
means not many people are willing to
read through them, which means you can
access data - very interesting data - that
not many business people know about.
So research papers, they are a box of
treasure. So I found this research paper
a university in England had put together
and as I was reading through it I felt
my colleague, Justin, might find these data
very useful in his own projects and
I like pretending to be a nice guy.
so today I'm going to write an e-mail to
Justin to share this useful information.
So let me show you how that email will go:
Hi Justin, I was doing a little
research related to my project and I
came across data that you may find
useful. It's an academic research paper
that will not look too appetizing, but on
page 79 of the attached PDF are the
results of a massive survey on career
development at 50 major international
companies. Check it out. Kyota.
Okay so in my first paragraph, I'm
hinting at why I'm sending this email.
I wrote "I came across data that you may
find useful" and then I warned Justin
that this is an academic paper. Academic
papers are often very very long and
difficult to read. "Will not look too
appetizing" is just another way of saying
this won't be an easy document to read.
So I suggested that he only read page 79,
which has the information he may be
interested in. This way, Justin won't need
to waste so much time trying to look
through all 100 pages of this paper.
So there you go, an e-mail to share useful
information with a colleague. If Justin actually reads this paper, we'll have something to
discuss later, which is always fun.
Alright, so that's it for today. Thank you
for watching and I'll see you next week
