Tip 1: How to send a resume by email
All contacts of the employer, which he deems necessary to make public, can be found directly in the vacancy announcement. E-mail among them will be required: often employers prefer not to make the phone public to protect themselves from calls of mostly known unsuitable bidders (and there will always be much more than vacant seats).
If the source of information about the vacancy was the company's website, the email address of its personnel department should be either in the description of a particular vacancy, or in the section devoted to a career.
It is best to copy it directly from the source and paste it into the desired field of the letter.
In the field for the topic, specify the question you are asking. For example: "Response to a vacancy. "Or" Summary of the position. ".
The addressee should see that he received not spam, but an appeal on the topic of his interest at the moment. In addition, it will give more chances that your letter will go through a spam filter.
Do not forget to attach the resume file to the letter using a special button ("Attachment", "Attachement" or something close in meaning).
Send an empty letter to the employer with the resume attached to it for a long time is considered bad form. Use the message body to place a cover letter in it. The purpose of this document is to convince the employer that it makes sense to waste time opening a file with a resume, and not immediately delete your message.
If you have absolutely nothing to say, you can use the option: "Hello! Please consider my candidacy for the vacant position. and see my resume in the attached file. Sincerely. "
Even this banal and template variant looks much better than the message without this text.
Before you send a message, check it. Make sure that there are no grammatical errors in the text. And if the language is not at odds (which in itself is not yet criminal, but in this case errors are unacceptable), type it in MSWord. Speller, although not the best assistant, but even worse - even without him.
Check if the resume is stale, outdated, or oriented to a different profession or position. If something is wrong, replace it.
Only when you are sure that everything is as it should be, the letter can be considered ready for sending.
Never call a file a "summary". The best option - to specify your name, even better - also the name of the vacancy. For example, "Ivanov Sales Manager resume." The employer can get a lot of letters for a day with the same name of the attached file, and he should save all of them in one folder. Freed him from the bad work, you will win extra points.
A common mistake of applicants: to name the resume file simply resume.doc. And the employer can receive millions of letters containing an attachment with that name. Well, how do you identify them, when all the responses to a job are usually stored in one folder? It is better to use additional identifiers: name and surname plus the name of the profession or position under which the specific resume is made (if you are interested in several posts, the summary for each should be separate and emphasize the strengths most relevant for this position and bring to the forefront sought after ones it is on her experience and skills).
Do not send a CV in the body of the letter, unless the employer himself so requests.
When using MSWord to compile a resume, it is better to save the file to an older version of the editor. It will open and a new one, which the employer may not have (and there are many such companies, including quite solid companies), and the former variations of the program.
