Respect EVERY title. Remain in control, slow down, be transparent even when it feels awkward, and be kind.

Tons of good advice from your elders 🤣

Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
Don't let the company relocate you if you don't want to go.

I have seen alot of content saying that you need to make sure your subject and first sentence are personable/concise as that is what makes it into their email preview. That will help open rates and hopefully return rates if the rest of your content is worth reading
