Making Resume Online: How to Send Resume by E-mail

In: job search

The way you have applied for a job via e-mail can tell the perspective employer a lot about you even before he takes a glance at your resume. Your ability to follow the instruction, your email etiquette and professionalism – here’s just a few things you can demonstrate with a single email.

So, how to email your resume effectively to make sure it’s read and to endear the manager? See our hints below.

The golden rule of e-mail application

Read carefully what the employer expects to receive via email. Surprising how many people neglect this simple rule. Do they ask for resume only or resume and motivational letter? Do they need your portfolio or ask to reply with a desired compensation? Send everything they need in a format they request.


It’s tempting to send a resume and cover letter as soon as you’ve finished making resume online. Not so fast, though: attachments matter.

  • Name your file as “Name Surname_resume”. This will save the recruiter’s time and make it easy to navigate in the pile with hundreds of files.
  • Attach.doc or .pdf files unless the employer request to apply using different format.

The subject line

An e-mail starts with subject line, so make sure it reflects the content of the letter properly. Such subjects as:

Application for Marketing Director Position

Editor-in-Chief: Your Name

Job Code XXX: Bank Teller: Your Name

are good examples. Putting something like “Job application” is too weak.

Copy and Paste

If you are asked to send a resume in email body, check if the formatting saves. Try sending the letter to yourself to check if everything displayed correctly and only then send it to a recruiter.

Email Message

Include a short message if you send the application documents as attachments. In 3-4 sentences, express your interest and desire to work with the company. Don’t turn your email into a cover letter, though: make sure it’s short and up to the point.

Add a signature with your contact information to make it easy for a recruiter to contact with you.
