    e-mailing resumes (Smilies)

    I have been job searching on line and have found many jobs on different web sites that i'm interested in. I have my resume on disc and have no idea how to send employerss my resume I find a job and the "e-mail resume now" box appears. I've heard I have do an attachment or something but don't know how to begin. I'd appreciate it if someone could walk me through sending my resume from a disc, I'm clueless!! Thankyou, Woody's is great... <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23>

    OK - a few quick questions:
    What version of Outlook?
    What do you mean by "e-mail resume box" appears? Do you mean a button to click on? And if so, does it open up a blank email, ready for you to send?
    Or do you mean you fill in a form on the web-page, and there is a box for you to attach your file to - much like the 'Attach a file' entry field I see immediately below where I am typing now?
    What format is your resume in? A Word .doc?

    Heh Lief, my resume is in word. When I go to ex. Monster.com, I find jobs that I want to apply for and after the description it says apply now. This is where I don't know how to even start, my resume is on my disc in word and I'm on -line. I;m not sure how to get my resume to them from my disc in word !! I'm sorry, I'm lost

    We have a subscription with HotJobs, and what ends up in the recruiting coordinator's mailbox is usually just plain text. If the person has not thought ahead about how this will look, it usually looks pretty bad. I think this is the case whether they register with the site and set up their resume there, or just paste it into a text box on the application page. You might want to develop a version of your resume that would look good in text format (e.g., no more than 76 characters per row, and a minimum of table columns). Although we are not the type of firm that uses software to sort through applicants, many companies do, and they will not process Word documents. Naturally, if you get over the first hurdle and get a call, you can submit the nicest looking resume in the world at that point.

    I also use Monster and when this APPLY button is clicked, it offers me one of the two resumes I've already put into the Monster system.
    I suspect that you must join Monster (no fees) and put up a resume first, then you won't have to manually attach a resume; it will be done as part of the Apply process.
    Hope this helps,
