  • I attach my resume and treat the email as a cover letter and make it very formal.

  • Whenever I did it, I attached my resume, but wrote a short message in the body of the email. Usually something to the effect of "My name is Wendy _______ and I'm applying for the ______ position you advertised in ______________. I've attached my resume for your consideration, and look forward to hearing from you soon."

    Depending on what the ad asked for, I might include a brief statement about why I thought I'd be good in the position, or what skills qualified me for it, or answer specific questions asked in the ad. I also put my contact info in the message, as well as on my resume.
