Who do I e-mail to apply?

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jun 04, 2012 10:33 am

At the moment, I am sending out my resume and cover letter to law firms that I am interested in. Some do not give the name of the hiring contact for their firm, in which case, I give them a call, and someone is usually nice enough to give me the name of the person to whom I need to address my materials to.

Q: I was given a name; the website says to e-mail all materials to a generic (think inquiries@) address, meant for job applicants and clients alike; and this individual person (who is not an attorney, but makes the financial decisions for the firm) has a separate e-mail address.

Do I e-mail to the generic address, or to the person's address?

Email directly whoever you were told to email.

I had success, in cases where there was no direction on the website, emailing a partner who is named in the firm's letterhead for guidance.
