I got an email on Friday. Subject line: IT JOB APPLICANT. I opened it. No text. Just 5 attachments containing a resume, cover letter and three letters of reference. It was sent to me and 14 other lucky recipients.
Because my whole career is based around helping other people with their careers, rather than hitting delete I replied:
I hope you sent this by mistake. This is not an effective way to find a job, at all.
People will treat this as spam and will not open your attachments. You need to apply to each company individually with an individual cover letter. Good luck.
