When mailing resumes, try to use a good grade of slightly off-white paper stock
with matching envelope. No fancy font! Make calls to the employer
location to identify the correct name of any individual to address the cover
letter. If no name can be identified, use specific generic titles such as
Human Resources Manager, Claims Manager, etc.
In order to keep the resume focused and concise, leave out personal hobbies,
family information and other information not related to the career field.
The paper resume should be on the best grade of paper and matching envelope,
when placed in the mail. Do not use fancy or unusual font.
Grammar and Spelling
Grammar and spelling are highly important. Poor grammar and spelling
mistakes will doom a resume to the trash basket.
