Mass Mailing Question

Postby Zeile » Fri Jun 29, 2012 9:29 am

Before mailing firms you cover letter and resume, is it best to contact the recruiting coordinator first and strike up a conversation so to speak, or should you just send an email with your materials attached to the designated contact? Furthermore, does one generally (assuming the firm doesn't specify) just include a cover letter and resume and indicate that a writing sample, transcript, and references can be provided -- or should all the materials be sent together as one?

What is the point of the conversation? I only see the point in contacting them first if you have a question. I had a PDF packet with cover letter, resume, transcript, and writing sample. I said references could be provided. I sent this via e-mail. Some firms, though, want you to apply online through their website.
