Check Employer's Instructions for Sending Resume/Cover Letter


Most corporate career centers give job-seekers explicit instructions for how they want to receive cover letters and resumes. Some request that you email the material, some request that you submit it via a form from the company’s Web site, a few request that you fax it, and a very small few ask you to mail it. Some will include the name of the hiring manager, while others will simply ask you to respond with a job number. Email cover letters are a bit different from regular cover letters, though most of the same rules apply. Our book, Dynamic Cover Letters provides some good information and sample email cover letters, as does our article, titled Tips for a Dynamic Email Cover Letter.
