Emailing a Resume: What you should know?

So you have been ‘stoning’ recruiters with your Resume?

You ask how, right? Here’s how: Emailing your C.V  without a Mail Subject and/or a Mail Body.

It’s like you just threw it at them saying “Open it if you so please.”

Recruiters spend on an average 13 hours per week sourcing candidates for a single role.This pin points the fact that they would naturally use every technique possible to eliminate stress.

Moreover for every vacancy a lot of applications are sent and received which makes it obviously a battle of the fittest.

Leaving your C.V. email bare most assuredly makes your C.V. disqualified from being viewed at all.

So you wait and wait and wait and you are not being called for that interview even though you made efforts to give your C.V. a professional touch .
