This example of sending a cover letter attachment is shown using Microsoft Outlook. First, open your email account. Then click on Message at the top left of the screen or click on File, New, Message.
You can either type your cover letter directly into the email message, copy and paste from a word processing document, or, if the company requests an attachment, send your cover letter with the email message.
It's important to follow the directions in the job posting when sending your cover letter and resume or your application may not be considered.
