Job Email Application-The How’s

Do you need to email a resume to apply for a job?

Here are a few helpful tips:

It is important to follow the employer’s instructions on how to submit your cover letter and resume. Always include the job information i.e. Job and reference number in the subject line of the email message. When saving your resume always remember to save it as your full name and surname or else it will go to the employer as a ‘doc’. Always use a simple font and remove fancy formatting. Do not use HTML. A cover letter can be sent as an attachment or typed into the body of the email.  If you do not have a cover letter Always type an introductory email before attaching your resume; introducing yourself and stating the job you are applying for.  With regards to your resume make sure you have all your dates for the relevant positions including full job descriptions.

Always Always proof read your resume and check grammar and capitalisation. Employers expect the same level of professionalism in an email. Remember what the employer sees first hand is an impression of you, your professionalism and attention to detail.

Good luck!

Persistence

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and will always solve the problems of the human race”.  Calvin Coolidge

Confidence

“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy”  Norman Vincent Peale

Courage to Change

“If you have the courage to change yourself for the better, right at this very moment, then you are already a success. Moreover, the immense joy this will give you is far more important than any wealth.”
