Mistake while mass mailing - what to do?

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Aug 12, 2012 3:33 am

So...I'm an idiot. I've been mass mailing and I sent a bunch of emails to firms and have attached a cover letter, resume, and unofficial transcript, but my cover letter says I have also attached a writing sample. The body of the email says that I've only attached what I actually did attach (no writing sample). Dumb, I know.

What do I do? Take the L and hope they don't care? Or should I supplement those applications and say I wanted to add my writing sample as well?

Most firms don't seem to look at writing samples, and if they like you and want to see if they'll probably follow up with you. I wouldn't sweat it.

TCR

Don't send out a bunch of writing samples.
