How to Attach a Resume in an Email


In recent years, applying for jobs online has become increasingly popular. Not only is it cheaper to send an email than to send a letter through regular mail, it is also faster and therefore allows you to contact more potential employers in a minimal amount of time. When applying for a job by email, most recruiters ask you to attach your resume to your message. You can do so in just a few steps.

  • Open your email program or your webmail site.

  • Click on "New message" and fill in the "To:" and "Subject:" fields.

  • Type your cover letter in the body of the email.

  • Click on the "Attach" or "Paperclip" button to attach your resume. Locate the file which contains the resume on your hard drive and click on the "Open" button.

  • Send your email along with the attached resume by clicking on the "Send" button.

Tips & Warnings

  • When sending a resume as an attachment, it is best to save it in a popular format such as the .doc or .txt formats.
