    @beetee123:  I would email human resources first and foremost unless you see where they say to send your email to a certain person. You can always call and ask how to submit your resume too

    @beetee123:  I have experience in recruiting, and I don’t know of any company these days that just expects people to send in their resumes. The vast majority of companies will have an electornic system like you’ve encountered before, where you submit your resume as part of the application process. Some may have a contact person to email your resume to instead. If you mail a resume, it is unlikely to get to the correct person, especially in a large company. However, if you do need to mail a resume for some reason, put it in a large envelope so that it doesn’t arrive creased. Good luck in your job search!

    @beetee123:  Ah, gotcha. That’s different than my experience in more corporate environments. If they’re small firms/individual brokers it’s more likely that they’d accept a mailed resume then, but I still think electronic is best. So I would email my resume in cover letter if I were in your position.

    Most companies have online career databases that allow you to submit your resume to an actual position. Otherwise they may just have where you can submit your resume to their company, and they will contact you if they find a position that you might be a good fit for. If the company does not have a website, I would suggest going in or calling and inquiring about submiting your resume for X position. Someone would be able to direct you to the right person that will know what to do.

    I’ve been applying to tons of jobs lately as I’m about to finish my program in April.  Every job ad says to submit resumes electronically and will not be accepted in person.  Great.  That makes getting a job a whole lot harder.  I’m actually feeling pretty discouraged.  :S  The economy sucks
