How to Send a Resume and Cover Letter Attachment
Copyright Pali Rao
When you are sending cover letter and resume attachments, the first step is to save your resume as a PDF or a Word document. This way the receiver will get a copy of the resume and letter in the original format.

If you have word processing software other than Microsoft Word save your resume as a Word (.doc) document. File, Save As, should be an option in your program.

To save your documents as a PDF, depending on your word processing software you may be able to File, Print to Adobe PDF. If not, there are programs you can use to convert a file to a PDF.

Use your name as the file name, so the employer knows whose resume and cover letter it is i.e. janedoeresume.doc and janedoecoverletter.doc.
