•3. Be Professional At All Times
When applying for a home-based job, never respond to an ad via email stating, “I’m interested in work-at-home (data entry) position.” This is quite unprofessional. Once you find a home-based job vacancy, apply by sending your cover letter and resume, or fill out an online application.
If employer didn’t ask for a cover letter in job vacancy ad, please send one anyway. Never send a resume without a cover letter. It will get thrown in trash. Please customize each cover letter with information tailored to that specific job advertisement.
•4. Never Send Your Resume As An Attachment Unless The ad States That You Can Do So
The hiring manager might never open attachment. Also, never copy and paste your resume into body of your email and send it to an employer. It will change format by time it reaches to employer, and will look like a jumbled mess. You must create an ASCII/Plain Text resume and cover letter. For more information on how to do this please visit following web sites, http://resume.monster.com/dosanddonts/email/Index.asp or http://www.eresumeiq.com/ABC.html.
•5. Follow Instructions
When responding to a job vacancy announcement please make sure you follow ad instructions. If ad asks for specific information please do exactly as it says. For instance, if ad says, please describe home office equipment, make sure you mention in your cover letter exactly what equipment you have in your home office.
I was once commended by an employer for being only job applicant, out of hundreds to actually follow specific instructions in job ad. I was hired for this home-based job mainly because I followed instructions, not because I was more qualified than all other applicants.
