Format for emailing your resume

Send Your Email Resume

If you are asked to send an attachment, send your resume as a PDF or a Word document depending on instructions. Sometimes employers do not accept attachments. In these cases, paste your resume into your email message as plain text. Use a simple font and remove the fancy formatting. You have no idea about employer’s email reading software

Write suitable Subject Line
Make sure to list the position you are applying for in the Subject Line of your email address, so the employer is clear as to what job you are applying for.

Check Your Email
Make sure you spell check and check your grammar and capitalization. They are just as important in email messages as in paper correspondence.

Include a signature with your contact information, so it’s easy for the hiring manager to get in touch with you.

Send a Test Email
Attach your resume, and then email yourself first to test that the formatting works. Open the attachment to ensure, you attached the right file in the right format and it opens correctly. If everything looks good, send to the employer.
