How to Email a Resume?
Use an effective subject line
Address the hiring manager by name
In the first paragraph, tell the hiring manager who you are and why are you contacting them

We’ll get to how you can email your resume in a sec, but consider this:
Imagine you find a job offer of your dreams. You know you’d be a great fit. You make a perfect, customise resume and write a compelling cover letter. Then you send your job application via email.
