So That "Resume" Does Not Equal "Spam"

Clues so as not to get nailed as spam when sending a resume:

  • Send as plain text, not an attachment, unless employer requests an attachment.
  • Don't attach compressed files.
  • Send to only one employer at a time.
  • Keep words such as "free," "trial," "singles" and "cash" to a minimum.
  • Avoid subject lines with punctuation, all caps, or buzz words above.
  • Don't use color backgrounds.
  • Make sure there is a valid address in the "reply to" field.
  • Don't use an e-mail address with too many numbers.

Thanks to Joyce Megginson Kircher for these tips!
