Job Search Tips: The Attachments Edition


Dear Prospective Intern:

When you apply for an internship at my institution, we ask you to attach your resume to our online application. When you attach your resume, please be sure that it has your name on it.

Please also be sure that you attach your resume, and not your cover letter to Dreamworks. We here are fans of Dreamworks, but we don’t have any jobs for you that involve Dreamworks, because in point of fact we aren’t Dreamworks. We also still need your resume.

If it were up to me, you would be disqualified from the applicant pool for your faux pas, but it’s not.

Thank you for your time,

The vaguely annoyed intern “wrangler”
