Should I email my application?

Q. Hi, when sending out speculative applications, is it better to email them, or to post/mail them to the targeted company? Charles


A. It is great that you are taking a proactive approach to job hunting. How you send your speculative CV is not as important as the person in the company you send the CV to.

Ensure that you send the CV to the function manager rather than HR. Before sending a CV try to find the department manager who would ultimately be hiring your skill sets. Personally I would probably email the document as it is easier for a manager to acknowledge your application. Be sure to follow up your speculative applications with a quick call.
