A trojanhorse strategy for job hunters.

Everyone's face lights up when they see one of those little envelopes  that are peculiar to "thank you" note cards – those tiny little 4 x 4 white envelopes with barely enough room to write a name and address on  the front and a return address on the back.


Fold your resume and cover letter together carefully until they fit  inside and then mail.

  • Don't use labels, address each one by hand
  • Use this technique around any holiday – Christmas, New Year's,  Fourth of July, etc.
  • Use a small size tasteful stamp.
  • If you feel you can afford it, use a stamp with your picture on it.  In Canada you can put any picture you wish on a stamp. Details of their Picture Postage program can be found here: http://www.canadapost.ca
  • To really get noticed, use a stamp with their logo on it and send  them the rest.
