To politely ask for a job opening, write a proper subject line that itself describes the purpose. Be specific about the job opening are you looking for, and showcase your skills & experience and finally attach your resume and keep the email short.
Instead of depending on only job portals & paper ads, it is better to send inquiry emails directly to recruiters. If is there any opening they will intimate you.
Do you know! even recruiters will love to receive such messages because it makes their work easy. In case if they don’t have any vacancies, still they keep your resume, for future references.
Asking for a job opportunity politely is a skill, if you know this skill then you will definitely get your desired job. The more emails you send the more chances you will have.
