How to Copy Your Resume to an Email Message

1. Avoid sending the resume as an attachment, since many companies are cautious about opening attachments due to potential virus problems.

2. Open the resume that you have previously created in a word processor. Make sure there is no special formatting, like bullets or underlining. They don't translate well to email.

3. Use the mouse and click and drag to select the resume text you want to transfer to email.

4. Go to the File menu and choose Copy.

5. Now open your email program and choose "Send new message" or "Compose new message."

6. Click the mouse once in the message box. Go to File, then Paste. Your resume should appear. You can now fiddle with it to make it look the way you want to. (If you want to know how it will look when you send it, try sending it to yourself first!)

7. Fill in the e-mail address of the person you're sending to, and the subject. You should always have a subject line when e-mailing a resume -- even just a reference to the job you are applying for.

8. You may also want to add a few lines at the beginning of the message, stating who you are, the position you are applying for, and why you are interested.
