It may be easy to type in capital letters, but as mentioned above it has a strong effect. Sometimes it is difficult to read and understand when we use all caps.
Another problem is that most of the word processors and web browsers will not display spelling errors while we type in CAPS but will show up otherwise. (see below, spelling not correct for CORECTIONS). This would result in sending mails with spelling mistakes.
Here is an email we received recently:
IAM HEREBY ATTACHING MY RESUME FOR YOUR EVALUATION.KINDLY GO THROUGH AND ADVICE THE NECESSARY CORECTIONS
In the above email, note that there are punctuation mistakes. No ‘,’ after the salutation. No space given between IAM. Then, no space before KINDLY and so on.
Of course, these are minor things. But remember you are applying for a job. When the employer opens your email, the first thing they notice would be these mistakes rather than your highly qualified resume. There it matters.
Hence, it is advisable to avoid all CAPS writing and remember to use appropriate punctuations.
