Will mailing out your resume provide results?
Updated: Apr 30
Posting out your resume can produce some outcomes, and they can be very successful outcomes too. I have personally posted out my resume before to employers who are time poor or work unusual hours and ended up with excellent results.
Mailing your resume and cover letter will always help you stand out from the crowd and a great way to make sure your application doesn’t sit unread in a general email inbox. Even though the process of applying for jobs is becoming more digital by the day, it’s smart to cover your bases and send a snail mail application in addition to an emailed one, especially for local jobs with traditional storefronts. There is an interesting article that you may like to read on this topic talking about why your CV should be tailored for a particular role.
However, don’t put all your eggs in one basket; keep your options open when applying for work. Some suggestions are emailing, posting, cold calling, applying online, etc.
