Hi there I'm sure this is a dumb question, but I'm applying for a new job and not sure whether I should print off my application and post, or just email. If I email, would I attach my covering letter as an attachment or copy it in to the main email section? I'm worried that they may just print off the application form (which has a supporting statement on it) and not share the covering letter with the others involved in the short-listing process. So I'm thinking it may be better to post the whole lot - in which case, would I staple it all together so nothing goes astray? Is there anyone out there who can advise on how the short-listing process works? Does everything get printed off and kept together?
