Checklist for sending a Resume by Email

  1. Use a simple font and do not add a variety of fonts as that can look unprofessional and unattractive.
  2. Make sure that the resume is made as per the specific job you are applying for. This can be done by highlighting the skills and experiences that a particular job or company needs.
  3. The length of the resume should remain limited to a maximum of two pages. Remove unnecessary details and keep the information that is most relevant.
  4. Ensure that there are no typos or typing errors on the resume. That will make for a bad impression on the prospective employers for sure. Read the resume and recheck for any spellings or grammatical errors.
  5. Always send a cover letter with the resume. Keep it short and simple.
  6. Do not use any silly or funny sounding email addresses to send the resume emails. Create and use a simple and decent email address for professional use.
  7. Do not send the resume as a group mail. Do not send to "to whomsoever it may concern" and try to find the name or designation of the mail recipient.
