How To Apply For a Job: Job Application 101

Posted on: July 1, 2011

Four things to remember when applying for a job online

Follow Instructions

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.

Spell Check!

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 tinymittens@hotmail.com — 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.
