How To Apply For a Job: Job Application 101
Posted July 1, 2011on:
Four things to remember when applying for a job online
A large number of resumes are automatically disqualified for failing to send it to the correct e-mail address. Double-check the email address and the title of the person you’re writing to. Make sure your job application includes the details the ad or listing requested: experience, salary requirements, etc.
Send a Cover Letter
A cover letter attached to your job application can immediately place strong emphasis on the qualities that make you valuable to the company.
If your resume or cover letter has a spelling or grammatical error, it won’t make it past the inbox and may likely end up immediately in the trash. Employers will worry that you won’t be detail-oriented in your job.
Use a Professional Email Address
Use an email address that includes your name or part of your name vs. something like firstname.lastname@example.org — you want to be taken seriously.
This approach, coupled with solid experience and career-related education, can make all the difference in your job search.
