How to Mail a Resume and Cover Letter? This post will answer your question. Read the following.

Updated March 11, 2020



If you've never mailed a resume and its accompanying cover letter, you may be wondering how to do so correctly. With this guide for newcomers to the workforce, get the tips you need to make sure your materials arrive in the mail on time and looking professional.


Even though most people apply for jobs online or via email, sometimes an employer will ask applicants to snail mail resumes and cover letters. Other times, job applicants who want to stand out from the crowd mail in their application materials to prospective employers to make sure their resumes and cover letters don'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.


1. Should a Resume and Cover Letter be Stapled or Paper Clipped?


Most employers will scan your resume into a database or copy and distribute it to any individuals who will be screening candidates. So, it’s not a good idea to staple your documents. It’s an extra step for the employer to remove the staple prior to scanning or copying.


You don’t need to use a paper clip either, but you can. You can simply stack your documents in order with the cover letter on top, followed by the resume and then any other materials the employer has requested. If you want to be sure they remain in order, you can use a paper clip.
