Contrary to popular opinion, faxing is still relevant in this digital age. Despite the proliferation of social media usage and emailing, faxing provides us with the option to communicate with someone immediately, and at the same time, our mode of communication, which is the faxed document, is a tangible document that may be replicated by the receiver for documentation and record-keeping purposes. Other than that, faxing also allows us to add a personalized touch to our business dealings.
There are several ways in which faxing makes things more convenient. One of the persons who can benefit from faxing are job applicants. Job applicants can also send their resumes and cover letters through faxing. If you are currently thinking of sending your resume through fax, then you need not worry about your cover letters.

Cover Sheets for Resume: What Are These?
Cover sheets for resume are the faxed version of regular cover letters. Faxing is indeed an unorthodox method of sending one’s resume to a company or prospective employer. That is why, if you plan on sending a resume through fax, you need to be able to know the proper procedure in sending one.
Faxing resumes entails that you attach a sheet that will inform your hiring manager that the document they are receiving is a resume. This sheet or page is called the cover sheet. A cover sheet is a combination of a fax notification sheet and a cover letter. Like all cover letters, this document should only be one page and should consist of only the basic parts. To help guide you through your cover sheet-making, here are some helpful guidelines for you to remember:
- You may opt to have your cover sheet in a fill-out cover sheet format or in a formal letter format.
- Whatever format you’ve chosen, you need to indicate at the topmost part that the fax you are sending is a cover sheet with resume.
- If you have chosen the formal letter format, observe standard formats of professional letters by addressing your recipient with the use of formal salutations.
- Include in your letter’s body only those qualifications that are most important.
- You should also remember to give your contact number or email address so that the hiring manager would find it easy to contact you should they decide to give you an initial interview.
- Remember to close your letter formally.
