Hello,

I need to change my answering machine message to record a more professional one as I will be looking for a new job pretty soon.
Could someone tell me if the following message is grammatically correct and sounds professional enough?


Hello, you are through to XXX, I am not available at the moment but please leave me a message with your name and number and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you.
Thanks in advance for your comments/tips/...

Regards,
Ludovic

I would just change the beginning a little, Ludovic:

Hello, this is ***. I am not available at the moment, but please leave me a message with your name and number, and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you.

Thank you very much for the quick reply!

Mister MicawberI would just change the beginning a little, Ludovic:

One change that I would prefer is "at this" instead of "at the".

My attempt:

Hi,

This is ..... Sorry, I am currently unavailable. Please leave your name, number, and message. I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank You.
Making a recorded message is a simple task that most people don’t give much thought to. I used to leave my name on the recording but only learned that “bad” people can tie the name and phone numbers together and turn you into a potential crime victim. So changed my recording as follows:

“ Hello, I am not available to answer you call at this time. Please leave a detailed message and the time you called after the beep. I will return your call promptly. Thank you “

However, if you are waiting for a call potentially with employment potential, you may want to include you name.
Thank you all.

Once I recorded the new message, I will let you know what I recorded Emotion: smile

Great! Just in case, make sure you say "get back to you" instead of "get you back".Emotion: smile A friend of mine did that, in fact.

I did this mistake back in 2001-2002 when I was studying in England, and someone told me the error after almost 10 months... so now, I'm quite careful with this one Emotion: smile
"leave me a message" is incorrect grammar..should be : Leave a message FOR me, or something similar.
