What to Write in an Email when Sending a Resume for Job [Samples]
If you're looking for a job, chances are good that there will be times that you need to send your resume and cover letter to a hiring manager via email. When deciding how to approach the process of emailing these important documents, it's important to consider the preferences of the recipient as well as the challenges you may face when sending a formatted document via email. Resumes and cover letters can be sent effectively within the body of an email message or as file attachments. While the easiest option is typically to include the cover letter in the body of your email with the resume as a PDF attachment, this is not what all people or companies prefer. If you are responding to a job announcement that requests submission of a resume and cover letter via email, look closely at the text to see if a preferred format is specified. Follow any instructions provided exactly, or you may be excluded from consideration. If you are not responding to a job announcement, but rather are submitting an unsolicited resume in the hopes of capturing the attention of a hiring manager or HR professional, take the time to try to find out what format is preferred.
