If you are applying for a job and asked to send your resume via fax, having a great cover sheet can easily make a difference and even get you the job. Your cover sheet (cover letter or cover page) must be informative enough, not include so many personal information, and be short, precise and right to the point.

So, to fill out and fax cover sheet online along with your resume, make sure to follow these simple rules:

One. Write your name, family name and phone number, as well as the title of your fax, to make sure you are easily recognized. Don’t just expect they know you and are waiting for your fax.

Two. If you are sending your resume to a fax machine, you need to clearly specify the recipient in the cover sheet, or your fax may end up in the trash and no one will ever know about it

Three. If you are sending multiple pages over fax, make sure to write the number of pages you are sending in the cover sheet. This trick is very helpful in case your fax is transmitted partially, and the receiver may call you back and ask you to send your fax again.

Four. Make sure you have clearly specified why you have sent this fax. Including a few sentences about yourself and reasons for faxing is enough. (If you are applying for a job, specifying your position as well as your vision is recommended)

Five. Change the font size to make your cover sheet be easy to read. But don’t go for a big font size.

Five. And last but not the least, don’t forget that faxes are transmitted in Black & White.
