♦ Send it to the right destination: It is the most important thing that you should send it to the place where you are submitting your resume. Just sending to the HR inbox of any organization will doesn’t give you the right results. Do little research about the company and send directly to the concerned HR people. Go through the hiring posting attentively, you may find a specific name, website or address. Many times employer posts the name of the recruiter in hiring posts along with their position and contact number. Then read the job application thoroughly and address it to the correct person. If you don’t come across the address of the recruiter then go and visit the company website and find the relevant email id, get the contact details and call to find out the correct hiring manager.

To find the right profile recruiters filter the profiles with using proper keywords. Add relevant skills matching the job description. These filters will identify the best matches from the database received from the thousands of job candidates. If you wish to make your resume visible, include keywords that will get your application in the consideration lot.
♦ Follow up: Follow-up is most important thing and it conveys the employers that you are very keen to the jobs applied. You can do follow-up by sending an email to the hiring manager that I’ve submitted my resume for the job position xxxxx on xxxxx date. Iam looking forward to hear from you soon and eagerly waiting for the reply. But sending a quick follow up email gives the employers a chance to let you know that they have your CV and also indicates your keenness for the job..
