Attachments Can Be Added to Emailed Cover Letters


TeenaRoseBook.jpg If the job advertisement asks you to send an attached resume, send it as a Word document. If the employer doesn’t accept attachments, copy and paste your resume into the body of your email. Use a font that’s easy to read and simple formatting. Don’t use HTML, because you don’t know what programs the employer uses or is familiar with. Send the email to yourself first so you can make sure the formatting works and any attachments can be opened. Once you have any bugs fixed, resend the email to the employer
