Paste, Don’t Attach

[play TheLadders new TV commercial. You’ll ‘Love’ it!]

Cut and paste a version of your cover letter and resume in the body of the email you send to recruiters, even if they ask for an attached Word document. Recruiters receive dozens, sometimes hundreds of resumes for each open position. It takes time to double click all those documents to open them. Save them the hassle by including your documents in the email as well as attaching it. They can always open the attachment if they like what they see. If they can’t find what they need quickly, they may ignore your documents in favor of the one that’s easier to read.
