What to send to company's that have "send your resume to x email we'd love to hear from you"

What do you include in the email? If they don't have a careers page with open positions to apply to, should I send my resume along with what I'm interested in pursuing (internship, part-time position to learn, full-time)?

Would love to hear from someone who actually landed a job this way. My impression is these inboxes are where resumes go to die. If you just want to throw a max number of applications at the wall and see what sticks, go for it. Otherwise if you've got a genuine interest in the firm, start looking for ways to reach out to people directly for networking.

In general I agree, but I was looking at a brokerage with 20 employees so I feel they'd respond there.

Seems like your odds would be better by looking people up on LinkedIn and contacting them directly.
