I am "mass" mailing about 20 firms (in my large target market and also smaller backup market.)
Do I just start the email with Dear Ms. Recruiter and then include my cover letter in the body of the email? Attaching the resume?
Or I am supposed to attach a fancy cover letter with nice formatting etc?
I've been sending applications to recruiters with (1) cover letter (2) transcript (3) resume and (4) writing sample. And yeah to your question, I usually do fancy pdf resume+cover letter combo with formatting. It only takes a minute.
I just saw someone in another thread talking about sending applications straight to random partners and associates, is this credited? WTF? I feel like getting random applications would be annoying AF, but I'm not sure.
If you are including the cover letter as an attachment, do you also include it in body of email? Or just a quick blurb in body?
I do quick blurb in body "hey this is who i am, here's my shit, sincerely, me"
