Time for some grammar lessons for me.
Is using 'Dear all' Ok when sending resume to a group of people, which consists of several MDs? Or is it too informal?

Sounds awful. Why are you emailing your resume to groups of MDs?

You should individually send. You'd come off very lazy if you sent one email to 17 MD's with a generic message and your CV

^Received an email from the MD I have been networking with, saying 'Please send your CV to all of us.' Two other MDs are copied on that email.

I would just go with the names of each MD then

if he told you to do that then dear all seems fine

2/25/12

Just leave off the dear all part and go into the cover letter directly..dear all sounds stupid.

The MD telling you to "send your CV to all of us" doesn't mean "do it with one email." DO send it to every MD, but send it to each one separately. Include in each email a request for feedback or a phone chat, etc.

why the hell is this even a question? If it is with the same firm/group just CC the other MDs, No one cares
Attach a CV to each email you send out. No need to have it in the body of the email just say i have my CV attached that goes into more detail about my background blah blah blah

This. He asked you to send your resume to all of them. Just reply all and attach your resume and brief sentence. If you're going to address anyone, address the MD that you've been in contact with.

to me, dear all sounds like you're addressing subordinates.

I always start with either "Gents!" or "My people!". In all seriousness though, this is a stupid question.

Blalock....your reply is hilarious. I have worked in investment banking for 10 years and yes they all want to be young. Having lived in NY for 5 years...the "yo son" comment...just made my day (as I'm now back in sunny California!)

How much longer is it going to take you to email all three MD's individually?
