How to write a personal statement: 10 things to put in yours

By Alan Bullock
(Careers Adviser) | 10 January 2020 | 13 min read

No two personal statements should be the same (the clue’s in the ‘personal’). But there ARE certain rules including it needs to achieve, length and more.

Share this page

Email & Print

Firstly, what is a Ucas personal statement?

A Ucas personal statement is like a short reflective essay you write about why you’re the perfect candidate for the undergraduate degree course/s you’re applying to.

It’s a key part of your Ucas application – alongside your predicted or achieved A-level, Scottish Higher, BTEC etc. grades – and is read by admissions tutors at the universities you apply to, who’ll decide whether to offer you a place or not.

It’s important to note that you only write one personal statement, which is seen by all the universities you apply to.

Also, a university personal statement works differently to a personal statement you’d write when applying to a job – so don’t confuse the two.

  • What are university entry requirements?

Watch now: How to write a Ucas personal statement
Watch our quick video to get started.

How long should a personal statement be?

You have a maximum of 4,000 characters and 47 lines to write your personal statement.

That might seem a lot from the outset, but your perspective might change as you begin writing and have to boil down all those relevant thoughts, skills and experiences.

It’s best to draft your statement and get it finalised in a Word document, and then copy this over to Ucas’s Apply system to submit it, rather than make changes afterwards.

Some admissions tutors will recommend that you leave a blank line to separate paragraphs, as any indentation or formatting will be stripped out when you copy your statement into Ucas Apply. However, from what we’ve seen, spacing will indeed count towards your character and spacing count.

Therefore, try to find a balance: rather than leave a blank line, try and finish your paragraphs m >– that way it looks as if it’s still a paragraph.

Because it’s stirred such fierce debate, Studential have created a Personal Statement Length Checker so you can check how your statement will look in Ucas Apply.

  • Going over the limit? Cut these from your statement now.

How do you structure a personal statement?

Your personal statement should show how you’ve made an effort to engage with your subject already, what you’ve learned, and how this relates back to the course (and possibly other future plans). This is known as the ‘ABC rule’: Action, Benefit and Course.

See our guide to personal examples for more insight into what a personal statement should look like.

Keep the above in mind as you plot out, draft and re-draft your statement so the things that do this best always take priority.

While you can use our Personal Statement Builder to create a first rough draft, here’s a summary of a solid six-point plan to structure your statement from The Student Room, that ticks off the above:

    Introduction: why you want to study this course at university.

Remember, your personal statement is seen by all your Ucas choices; so don’t make references to a specific institution. Read our full guide for tips to begin your personal statement with a bang.

Section one: academics – specifically subjects that are relevant to the course/subject you’re applying to. If you’ve taken an EPQ, this is the place to talk about it.

This section should make up the majority of your personal statement – around 75% according to some careers experts – but this might vary depending on where/what you’re applying to. For example, Oxbridge are more interested in your academic interests than extracurricular activities.

Meanwhile, a law or medicine applicant may want to invest more time talking about relevant experience they’ve accumulated, to stand out from those applying with similarly high grades.

  • Section two: interest in and engagement with your subject beyond the classroom (thus demonstrating your deep interest). This could be through books you’ve read, events you’ve been to etc.
  • Section three: relevant work experience (pa >–search for a course on Which? University to find this in one place — and see what’s common across all.
  • Section four: hobbies and interests – this section should be brief, sticking to the most relevant ones only. It can help you stand out from other cand >–read our full guide to hobbies and your personal statement for tips to do this properly).
  • Section five: conclusion – this should reiterate the key points you’ve made already. If you have an >

    Why is your personal statement important?

    While many students may apply to the same university course with the same grades as you, they aren’t you as a person, with your skills, experiences and thoughts. You need to stand out as a real person to an admissions tutor, as opposed to one of the many applicant numbers that will pass before their eyes.

    Your personal statement is where you can distinguish yourself from these other cand >

    How is your personal statement used by universities?

    At the end of the day, you still need to meet the formal entry requirements of a course, as laid out by the university. However, if the final spot on a course comes down to you and someone else with the same grades, what you write in your statement could nab it for you.

    If you’re invited to attend an interview, your personal statement is an opportunity to shape what you will be asked about – very useful if the thought of an interview terrifies you! At the very least, something in your statement could serve as a friendly icebreaker to ease you in.

    If you fall slightly short of the grades you need on results day, it’s a distinct possibility that your personal statement could clinch your place for you. Universities will often prefer to give it to you if your statement shows the kind of commitment and enthusiasm they’re looking for, rather than offer it to someone else who didn’t apply to them first time around.

    If you do find yourself in Clearing after results day, the universities you call will be able to see your personal statement. Therefore, your statement can help you make a big impression quickly during this fast-paced, short-notice interview process. In fact, we recommend re-reading your personal statement in the lead-up to results day to remind yourself why you would make a strong cand >

    How do you write a good personal statement?

    It’s not a sprint…

    You’ll likely go through a few drafts before you get the polished final version that you submit as part of your Ucas application – one student shares her statement-drafting experience.

    So don’t expect to thrash it out in a weekend.

    Also, check when your school wants your statement finished by, and work backwards from there. This will give you enough time to ask teachers or careers advisers for any help – they become pretty busy around that time of the year!

    • How to write a killer opening to your statement

    Start with your subject

    It’s easier with a few courses in mind

    While you could pull together a rough draft while you’re researching, it’s much easier to write your statement with a solid idea of your five Ucas choices (or at least most of them).

    Again, remember that your one personal statement goes to all the universities you apply to; so making specific references might not be the best idea.

    You can search for courses for the subject you’re interested in, to get a sense of what a course would involve (ie modules you’ll study).

    • Can you write a personal statement for multiple courses?

    The key word is ‘personal’

    This doesn’t mean pouring your heart out or emotionally blackmailing an admissions tutor.

    But it does mean your personal statement should reflect why you’re the right candidate for the courses you’re applying to, based on your experiences, skills and understanding; after all, these makes you unique.

    Can you guess what the magic word is?

    So while you can ask a friend for their advice or look at statement templates, what works for someone else won’t necessarily work for you.

    Any personal statements that show signs of plagiarism (ie copying from another statement) will be flagged by Ucas’ system. The universities you’ve applied to will be notified too. Obviously that won’t impress them and it may affect your chances of being accepted.

    Oxbridge vs non-Oxbridge

    Things vary a little when it comes to writing a personal statement for Oxford or Cambridge, compared to other universities (and not just when you need to get your application in by).

    Oxbridge personal statements tend to be more academic-centric and are a platform for you to discuss your understanding and thoughts on material that you’ve been exposed to, within your subject ie theories, works, topics, issues.

    • Oxbridge applications: five things you might not know

    Watch now: Five biggest personal statement struggles

    What should you write in your personal statement?

    OK, so you’re in the right mindset to start writing your personal statement – but what do you write? Here’s a checklist of ten things you might want to include:

    1. Explain why you want to study the course

    What motivates you to take this course further, at a university level? Talk about how your interest developed, what you’ve done to pursue it or how you’ve drawn inspiration from your current studies. Try to avoid overusing the word ‘passion’ when doing so.

    If you want to get something specific out of the course, provided it’s reasonable, say so.

    2. Explain how you’re right for the course

    Provide evidence to show that not only do you meet the selection criteria, but also that you’ve researched the course (or profession) and understand what studying the subject at university-level will involve. Also, show that you’re prepared for this by giving examples, such as having worked as part of a diverse group.

    • Got a course in mind? Search and learn more about it.

    3. Say what you’ve done outside the classroom

    Outline how you’ve pursued your interest in your chosen subject beyond your current syllabus and developed your understanding as a result. But don’t just give a long list of things you’ve done; it’s important that you give your critical views or reflections too, so admissions tutors can see how you think.

    Here, you could talk about specific books, quality newspapers, websites, blogs, periodicals or scientific journals you’ve read. Or you could discuss films, documentaries, blogs, radio programmes, podcasts and public lectures you’ve watched or listened to.

    Also, try to avoid the things everyone else will mention so you stand out.

    • Which hobbies should go in your personal statement?

    4. Why it’s relevant to your course.

    Reflect on your experiences, explaining what you’ve learnt from them or how they’ve helped develop your interest in the subject.

    It could be work experience, volunteering, a university taster session or outreach programme, summer schools, museum, gallery or theatre visits, archaeological digs, visits to the local courts, travel, competitions or a maths challenge. It’s not about quantity and it doesn’t have to be particularly special. The key thing is showing what you took away from it.

    • How to make work experience count in a statement

    5. … And relevant to your chosen career

    Reflecting on relevant experience or observations will be essential for some professional courses where, in effect, you’re applying for the career as well as the course:

    6. Can you demonstrate transferable skills?

    Yes, you can – and admissions tutors will want to hear about them!

    It could be your ability to work independently, teamwork, good time management, problem-solving, leadership, listening or organisational skills. Often universities will set these out in the description for a course. You just need to look for them.

    7. Expand on the most relevant ones

    But don’t simply rattle off all the skills you think you have. Think about which ones relate most readily to the course you’re applying to – another reason to search for your course and read up about it, as you write your statement. Then demonstrate how you’ve developed, used and continued to strengthen these.

    Again, admissions tutors want to hear about specific examples, like:

    • positions of responsibility (what did you achieve, how has it improved your self-confidence?)
    • Young Enterprise, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (what was the biggest challenge, how did you overcome it?)
    • volunteering or a part-time job (what have you observed, what extra responsibilities have you taken on, what skills have you demonstrated yourself?)

    8. Show that you’re a critical thinker

    University is all about being able to think independently and analytically, so being able to demonstrate that you’re already working in such a way is a big plus point.

    Briefly explaining how one of your A-level subjects, a BTEC assignment, placement, or additional studies such as the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) has made you think more critically could be a way of doing this.

    9. What’s the long-term plan?

    Mention what your longer term goals are if you can do it in an interesting way and you’ve got a specific path in mind. If you do, then try to show a spark of individuality or imagination.

    If you’re not sure yet, just talk about what you’re looking forward to at uni and what you want to gain from your course or from university life.

    If you’re applying for deferred entry, do mention your gap year plans if you’ve made a firm decision to take a year out. Most courses are happy for you to take a gap year – but they will want to know, briefly, how you plan to spend it.

    • How do universities view gap years?

    10. Keep it positive

    It can be difficult to get started with your personal statement, but don’t panic. Start with your strengths, focus on your enthusiasm for the course and talk positively about yourself.

    Try our personal statement builder to get your ideas down on paper, and take it from there.

    Meanwhile, our light-hearted video below might help relax some of those nerves…

    Personal statement dos and don’ts: summary

    • Dotailor it to your subject, showing your understanding and interest so far (and even what you want to learn more about).
    • Don’t make a long list of things you’ve done/read/watched without explaining how these developed this understanding.
    • Doresearch what skills and qualities the courses you’re applying to, demand and show how you already have these.
    • Don’t mention irrelevant or general hobbies; you want to stand out but not in the wrong way.

    5+ Examples of job adverts | Job Advertisement Marketing

    The announcements of employment are published in newspapers, classified on the Internet , in flyers and other media. A job advertisement is published to attract cand >

    Example job ad for a newspaper

    if you place a job advertisement in a newspaper, this generally charged a fee per line. This can be expensive if the ad is over. If an employer is willing to invest some money to find the right candidate, you can purchase a larger ad. However, in most cases, this should be kept at least five or six lines with abbreviated words that most readers can understand. The ad needs relevant information, including contact information (telephone numbers and email address) so that the candidate can apply for the position.

    When you place an ad, the representative of the newspaper will help you write and place the ad in the appropriate section. Small or community newspapers also decrease the cost of the ad. Placing a job advertisement in a newspaper can cost between US $ 5 and US $ 800 depending on the paper size and the size of the ad. Most employers publish their ads in the Sunday edition because these are more circulation.

    This is an example of an ad to keep the cost to a minimum:

    What’s On Crypto is building a Hub — One stop destination for Blockchain, Crypto & Visualizations about Money, In-depth Cost Guides and Tools.

    Cia. Gde looking Farmac Admin Asst. You must have had of composition and redacc. US $ 17 / hr. Please send CV to hr@email.com or fax (555) 555-555 . This announcement has about four or five lines of print in a newspaper.

    Example job ad for a website

    Placing a job ad on a page ad on the Internet is expensive, but the pages do not limit the size of the ad. When you place a job posting on a job site on the Internet, make it stand out and be attractive to candidates. Be informative about the company expressing the benefits and rewards of working there. Adding to the announcement key words and jargon will help it to appear when a candidate search for specific positions or grades. Adding a list of keywords at the bottom of the ad can also help. Upgrade the ad, making it look like a recent publication. Because there are so many job postings on the Internet, candidates could filter your search to the latest to avoid having a very large list of ads. Most job postings sites like Careerbuilder.com, Monster.com and HotJobs.com have representatives that will help you write and place the ad. Most even it has an online resource center for employers. This type of job advertisements can cost between US $ 400 and US $ 1000, so it’s important that your ad will not miss out on a job search site.

    This is an example of an advertisement for a job search site that includes keywords and a profile of the company to attract the right candidate:

    Due to continued success and growth, we have an administrative assistant position available! XYZ is a large and diverse pharmaceutical company, with 40,000 employees nationwide and US $ 200 million in profits. Our mission is to improve medicine developing cheaper drugs with fewer side effects for patients worldwide. Founded in 1973, XYZ employs a diverse team of people dedicated to our mission, offering an excellent salary and benefits package as health insurance, dental and vision, gym membership and 401K. We offer a casual work environment and a flexible schedule because we understand that your personal life is as important as your professional life. If you are dedicated and ready to work for an organization that cares about you, we have an opening for an administrative assistant. Some responsibilities include (List the responsibilities of the position) Education requirements: (List the education requirements) Please send your resume and cover to nombre@compañíaXYZ.com to be considered for this unique opportunity.

    Keywords: administrative assistant, Admin Asst, Admin Asst pharma, administrative, secretary, project coordinator, administrative assistant pharmacist. You start with the information showing the success of the company, it becomes attractive to a candidate. Add all the information on company profits and personal benefits to a casual work environment can also be attractive.

    Example of a job posting to a flyer

    In most cases, an employer will make a flyer to post a job at convenience stores, college campuses, supermarkets and vocational schools if they are looking for an employee without special skills, part-time or temporary. Fliers are used to find candidates who see ads on the Internet or are not very skilled with the computer. Working in positions such as maintenance, storage, assembly or deliveries may not require communication skills. These candidates are more likely to look in newspapers and flyers for job opportunities. In some cases, employers posted a flyer in an area frequented by such employees looking to hire.

    A good example would be to place a flyer for an assembler of electronics near a nail salon. Because this type of work requires no special skill, a nail technician could serve as an electronic assembly because they work in a repetitive environment. Both work in similar environments, dealing with detailed and repetitive work. Better pay and more benefits often attract people to work publications. A job posting via a steering wheel should include relevant information such as salary, benefits and contact information. It provides information such as an email address and fax number. It also allows the candidate to apply in person. In the example below, note that the information that will attract candidates in all capital letters, you can then customize with font sizes. Make it readable and clear, allowing the candidate to quickly record the basic information. If possible, add that information at the bottom of the advertisement in pre-cut vertical strips, allowing the candidate easily take the contact information.

    ELECTRONIC assemblers NEEDED! US $ 12 per hour with benefits. 40 hours a week, holidays and holiday pay. We seek to incorporate 7 PEOPLE IMMEDIATELY!

    Example conf >

    Confidential job ads are displayed when an organization wants to remain confidential or are looking to replace an existing employee. A high profile company might want to remain confidential to avoid an overwhelming response. This type of ad should be carefully planned and executed for several reasons. If a company is replacing an existing employee and a colleague found the ad, it could tell. The employee could also go for the ad if you have a feeling that will be replaced due to unsatisfactory performance. In most cases, ads are placed confidential to avoid embarrassing the employee that the company seeks to replace. When writing a confidential job posting, be sure to remove any information from the company. Uses an email address that is not affiliated with the company. Do not use existing ads with the same keywords and jargon. Make your ad is short and precise, but also revealed confidentiality ad. This helps candidates understand why the publication is confidential.Change the title of the job to be similar to the position but different enough to not appear to be affiliated with the organization. This is an example of a confidential job posting:

    Great local organization is conducting a confidential search for an executive assistant with excellent computer skills and three years experience in a similar position. This position pays $ 17 an hour with full benefits package. We offer a great work environment where you will be assessed as part of our team. Our organization and our services benefit individuals worldwide through improving the lives of low-cost recipes. Please send your resume and cover to: confidencial@correonoafiliado.com This announcement gives basic information about what the company does, without being too obvious. Looking at this ad, most candidates will see several things that are attractive: hourly pay, which the company provides benefits and is a pharmaceutical or medical organization. Another way to assist in a confidential search is to put the position is for a nearby city, rather than the actual location. This helps attract candidates outside the company, not employees who are looking to replace. Most candidates do not ignore a publication in your town and usually seek positions that are within 30 miles (48 km) from home.

    Cheap and free sources of job ads

    Because technology has made the job ads attract large groups of candidates in an easier way, also it has dramatically increased the cost of placing ads. Internet communities like Craigslist.com ads offer free or low-cost jobs in place. Most job ads are free, and the highest rates revolve around US $ 25. The fee is charged only by placing an advertisement in major metropolitan areas. Due to increased fraudulent accounts ads, where candidates unwittingly provide personal information, it is important to mark your company publishing reliable information that the seeker can verify.

    It is also important that the ad title stands out because those ads are presented in a standard format. Use bold case, if possible, often because these sites are full of advertisements.

    This is a good example:

    VACANCY ASSISTANT ADMIN – COMPANY XYZ – US $ 17 / HOUR Use the same information that you would publish in a place of work on the Internet, be sure to add the website of the company, a mail address and a number phone or fax. This will allow the candidate to check the information to know that the publication is legitimate. Because online communities are becoming more popular through word of mouth, they are a cheap alternative and can attract the right candidate.

    Imagine you find a job offer of your dreams. You know you’d be a great fit. You make a perfect, customized resume and write a compelling cover letter. Then you send your job application via email.

    Then you wait… and wait… and wait. Two weeks gone and you’re not getting the callback.

    I happen to know the answer to that: nobody even saw your resume.

    Because you don’t know how to email a resume the right way. Yet.

    Don’t worry, you’re about to learn a proven, easy way of emailing a resume, plus some extra tricks you can use along the way.

    In this guide I’m going to show you:

    How to Email a Resume Step By Step

    Tired of ending up in the resume Black Hole?

    Emailing a resume to a prospective employer instead of applying via job board application forms might just do the trick.

    First of all, it adds a personal touch and shows your persistence.

    If done right, the hiring manager will be more enthusiastic about reviewing a job application sent via a personalized email. Trust me, they’re stuck in that Black Hole, too. They’ll be happy to ditch those hundreds of identical job board applications.

    Secondly, it boosts your odds of avoiding an Applicant Tracking Software (ATS) resume test.

    The sad truth is that many resumes never make it to a human reader. They’re weeded out by the ATS. Sending a resume by email, directly to a human being makes it more likely that you’ll receive the attention you deserve.

    That said, there’s still a couple of crucial things to keep in mind when emailing a resume. Let’s go through the basics.

    Here are 7 steps to successfully emailing a resume.

    How to Email a Resume?

    1. Use an effective subject line
    2. Address the hiring manager by name
    3. In the first paragraph, tell the hiring manager who you are and why are you contacting them
    4. In the second paragraph say what value you’d bring to the company
    5. Close the resume email body with saying you’re eager to meet in person
    6. Add a professional signature with your contact details
    7. Attach your resume and a cover letter saved in PDF with professional file names

    Before I show you how it works in practice, I want to introduce you to someone.

    Meet Jason. He’s a successful Web Developer. He wants to join XYZ Corp. as an IT Manager. And the email he sent to XYZ’s hiring manager will get him there.

    Now, that’s one hell of a resume email. He’s sure to get a call from the hiring manager.

    Pro Tip: If you’d like to email your resume directly to the hiring manager but you don’t know how to get in touch with them, read on. We’ll cover that in-depth.

    So, now that you’ve seen what to write in an email when sending a resume and a cover letter, let’s see what exactly makes this resume email so great.

    Writing a perfect resume email is just a fraction of all the things you have to keep in mind before you click send. Get our free checklist, make sure nothing slipped your mind, and start getting more interviews: 46 Things You Need To Do Before You Send Your Resume

    The Subject Line Is Not as Basic as It Seems

    What if I told you that hiring managers test candidates before reviewing their resumes?

    The way you submit your application documents also matters. Sure, you can upload your resume and cover letter through a generic online application form. You’ll just end up in the same folder as the other 250 candidates.

    Or, you can send a personalized resume email and be in pole position right away!

    That is, only if your email gets opened. And guess what?

    It depends solely on your subject line. So make the most of it.

    State that you’re applying for a job, include the name of the position, job identifier (if applicable), and add some personal branding. Like this:

    Resume email sample subject line:

    How Do You Start an Email For a Job

    Subject: Award-winning HR specialist seeks Employer Branding Manager position #12345

    The hiring manager just rescheduled her meeting to review this application.

    Subject: Resume and cover letter for your consideration

    This one looks like a generic email spammed out to every company within 100 miles.

    Pro Tip: If the job offer asks for applying via email, check if the employer demands all applicants to use the same subject line, for instance, “Application for Position XYZ — [Your Name].” If so — you have to play by their rules.

    When to send a resume email?

    On Mondays, between 6am and 10am.

    Research has shown that applying on Mondays boosts your interview rate by 46% compared to the average. Submitting your resume between 6am and 10am (when almost nobody else does it) brings about a staggering 89% rise in hireability!

    At the same time, keep in mind the golden rule: first come, first served. It’s best to apply within 4 days since the job posting went live. So if you come across an interesting job offer on Thursday, email your resume right away, don’t put it off until the following Monday.

    One more tip, always remember to make your whole job application relevant and specific to the job you’re trying to land. This is called tailoring. It’s the most effective strategy for job seeking. Want to know how to do it right? Read our quick guide: 6 Tips on How to Tailor Your Resume to a Job Description (Examples)

    What Everybody Ought to Know About a Resume Email Template

    Most job seekers make a common mistake:

    They think that their email body for sending a resume should read exactly the same as their cover letter.

    Recruiters and hiring managers don’t have the time to review cover letters in their entirety. Your resume email has to be short and sweet. Just enough to make the hiring manager go, “Aaah, interesting!”

    In your resume email body, write only about the most relevant things. Make it a sneak peek of your job application. Make it irresistible.

    Remember how our candidate, Jason, did it? You can use his resume email as a template:

    What to write in an email when sending a resume and a cover letter?

    Sample email for a job application with resume — email body:

    Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name],

    I have attached my resume and a cover letter for [the name of the position].

    As a [your major success], with a proven record of [your measurable, quantified, relevant achievements], my goal is to leverage my skills and knowledge to help [the name of the employer] succeed with [the employer’s specific plans].

    I am looking forward to meeting you in person to share my insights and ideas on [how you’re going to help the prospective employer with their goals].

    [Your name]

    [Your job title]

    [LinkedIn profile]

    [email address]

    [phone number]

    That’ll do it. When sending a resume via email, you can’t afford to elaborate on everything. Make your resume email concise and skimmable.

    Use the same mail format for sending a resume with a reference. Just remember to mention the name of your reference in the first paragraph.

    Pro Tip: If the job ad explicitly asks for a “cover email,” a “covering email,” or an “email cover letter,” these are the only instances where you actually should paste your cover letter into your resume email. You can still attach your cover letter in a separate file, just make sure it matches the content of your cover email.

    Even if you craft the perfect email to send a resume, you still need a killer cover letter. Luckily, we’ve got a comprehensive, dedicated guide to show you how to write the best cover letter out there. Give it a read: How To Write A Cover Letter [Complete Guide With Examples]

    Plus, a great cover letter that matches your resume will give you an advantage over other candidates. You can write it in our cover letter builder here. Here’s what it may look like:

    Almost No One Makes a Personal Connection But It Works So Well

    Online job offers don’t always reveal who’s going to read your resume.

    That’s a shame because you are much more likely to get hired if the hiring manager knows of you beforehand.

    So, how do you get in touch with a hiring manager?

    Well, you might have heard about the six degrees of separation:

    You’re only separated from the likes of Kevin Bacon, The Queen of England, and Bill Gates by six other people.

    That’s why networking is important. You may not know the hiring manager, but you probably know someone who does.

    So, what you’re going to do?

    Reach out to friends, alumni, and former colleagues to see if they can put you in touch with the right person.

    Okay, but what if you’ve actually never networked and have few professional connections?

    Do some research to find the internal recruiters or HR personnel responsible for processing resumes where you want to work.

    Start with the company’s website to find the name of the hiring manager. Then, move to LinkedIn to see if you can find their email address.

    While finding a name is easy, finding an email address can be harder. Start by using an app called findthat.email.

    Once you’ve found a promising LinkedIn profile, the app will generate an email address for you.

    If that doesn’t work, you can try the oldschool way and use Google.

    Start your search with the company’s email domain:

    The search may not lead you directly to the hiring manager’s personal email address, but it’ll show you what formula the company uses for all of its email addresses.

    See, most companies use the same formula:

    If you can find that formula, all you need to do is plug in the hiring manager’s name.

    Can’t find the address formula either? You’ve only got the names of the company and the hiring manager?

    You’ve still got enough information. Here’s an Email Permutator that automatically generates all possible combinations of the hiring manager’s name and the company’s domain.

    Run them through a free email verification tool like MailTester. It isn’t flawless, but it’s a good way to lower your bounce rate.

    Pro Tip: If you’ve always wanted to work somewhere, don’t wait for open positions or linger on job boards. Reach out by emailing a resume. Position yourself now so you’ll be in the right place later.

    Note, not all hiring managers will appreciate receiving unsolicited resumes.

    Which is why you will want to start the process by sending the hiring manager an invite via LinkedIn.

    Why?

    By making a connection on LinkedIn first, the hiring manager gets a heads up. Otherwise, emailing a resume may come across as unprofessional or even as spam.

    Julie Dossett, Communications Lead at LinkedIn Canada, says:

    So you know how to send a resume via email, or a message to the hiring manager on LinkedIn. What’s next? You can be sure they’ll check your online presence. Good news is, you can have a shining online professional persona in a few easy steps! Read our guide to learn how to do it: How to Check Your Online Presence Before Recruiters Look You Up

    Key Takeaway

    Writing a good resume email for a job application is a very effective strategy few job seekers use. Now you know how to do it right. Just remember the key strategies we covered.

    The best tips for emailing a resume to an employer:

    • Follow the directions from the job ad. Remember, you have to play by their rules.
    • Attach your resume and a cover letter in the proper format. Usually, PDFs work best, but double-check with the job offer: some employers only accept DOC files.
    • Find the hiring manager’s name and email address. Send your resume email directly to them.
    • Use a strong subject line. Include the name of the position, the offer id, and spice it up with some personal branding.
    • Make your resume email short. It’s not your cover letter all over again. Focus only on your most stellar achievements.
    • Finish with a call to action. Say that you’re eager to meet in person to discuss how you can contribute to your prospective employer’s success.

    The process of finding people for particular jobs is recruitment or, especially in American English, hiring. Someone who has been recruited is a recruit or, in American English, a hire. The company employs or hires them; they join the company. A company may recruit employees directly or use outside recruiters, recruitment agencies or employment agencies. Outside specialists called headhunters may be called on to headhunt people for very important jobs, persuading them to leave the organizations they already work for. This process is called headhunting.

    B. Applying for a job

    Fred is a van driver, but he was fed up with long trips. He looked in the situations vacant pages of his local newspaper, where a local supermarket was advertising for van drivers for a new delivery service. He applied for the job by completing an application form and sending it in.

    Harry is a building engineer. He saw a job in the appointments pages of one of the national papers. He made an application, sending in his CV (curriculum vitae) -the ‘story’ of his working life and a covering letter explaining why he wanted the job and why he was the right person for it.

    Note: Situation, post and position are formal words often used in job advertisements and applications.

    C. Selection procedures

    Dagmar Schm > ‘We advertise in national newspapers. We look at the backgrounds of applicants: their experience of different jobs and their educational qualifications. We don’t ask for handwritten letters of application as people usually apply by e-mail. We invite the most interesting candidates to a group discussion. Then we have individual interviews with each candidate. We also ask the candidates to do written psychometric tests to assess their intelligence and personality.

    After this, we shortlist three or four candidates. We check their references by writing to their referees: previous employers or teachers that candidates have named in their applications. If the references are OK, we ask the candidates to come back for more interviews. Finally, we offer the job to someone, and if they turn it down we have to think again. If they accept it, we hire them. We only appoint someone if we find the ‘right person.’
