When applying for jobs on Monster, CareerBuilder, or Hotjobs, I advise my clients to focus on job listings that provide the applicant with a real person's email address to submit their resume to, as opposed to a generic email address (john.smith@company.com vs. hr@company.com). I can't help but think that emails sent to a generic address end up lost in cyberspace for all eternity. Furthermore, once you've applied for a particular position, if you have a real person's email address, you can follow-up a week later (or send relevant links you find in the news, befriend them on Linked In, etc.).

Are you applying for jobs on major job boards that provide you with a real person's email address?
