How to Formally Introduce Yourself by Email at a New Job

We all know that first impressions are important, and so introducing ourselves at a new job is an important step to creating a positive start.  This post is about how to introduce yourself by email when you are the new person at work.  It will cover how to introduce yourself to your boss, team and co-workers.

.

Intro Sentence:

This introduction sentence can vary depending on who you are addressing it to.

  • Dear ………. , (for example: “Dear Mr. Drake, Dear Professor Leon, Dear Dr. Marks)  This is the most formal way of introducing yourself.  It is great to use with bosses, supervisors, or other people who you wish to present yourself to in a formal and professional way.
  • Hello …………. (for example: Hello Mark and Kerrie, Hello Danielle, Marketing Team) This is less formal. You will notice that in the examples used here this is used in cases where you are addressing the person by the first name.  You can also use this in cases where you will be addressing a team or a group of people whom you may not have met in person yet.

Explain who you are and the position you have been hired for:

  • My name is Amanda Smith, I have just been hired as the new sales assistant here at Jennings.
  • My name is Blake Miles, as you may have heard, I will be taking the role of Sr. Marketing Director starting on September 20th.

Let them know why you are writing:

  • I wish to take a moment to introduce myself to you by email to say hello.
  • I am sending this email to introduce myself to you and give you my contact information, should you need to reach me for any reason (include contact information).

Add how much you are looking forward to meeting them in person and working with them in the future:

  • I genuinely look forward to having the opportunity to meet you in person, and am excited about the projects we will be working on together in the future.
  • I´m enthusiastic about joining this team and look forward to meeting everyone in person.
  • I hope to meet you soon and look forward to the upcoming months here at (company name).

Invite them to get in contact with you personally, if they wish:

  • Please feel free to stop by my office any time, if you have any questions or would just like to meet in person.
  • If I can be of service at any moment please feel free to contact me.

Ways to Formally End the Email:

  • Kind Regards,
  • Sincerely,
  • All the Best,

 

 

Together this creates email introductions such as:

Dear Professor Leon,

My name is Anthony Mattel, I have just been hired as the new legal assistant at Dalwoods. I am sending this email to introduce myself to you and give you my contact information, should you need to reach me for any reason.  My email address is amattel@dalwoods.com and my internal line is #17.  I genuinely look forward to having the opportunity to meet you in person, and am excited about the projects we will be working on together in the future.

Kind Regards,

Anthony Mattel

 

Hello Marketing Team!

My name is Blake Miles, as you may have heard, I will be taking the role of Sr. Marketing Director starting on September 20th.  I wish to take a moment to introduce myself to you by email to say hello. I´m enthusiastic about joining this team and look forward to meeting everyone in person. Please feel free to stop by my office any time after the 20th, if you have any questions or would just like to meet in person.

Sincerely,
