    Once you find a league you may be interested in, contact them via the site's mechanism (usually in the form of a 'contact' or 'pm' or 'private message' button). Alternatively, some leagues provide their email in the posting, so you can contact them directly via email instead.

    When contacting the league, express your interest and why you may be a great fit, but instead of writing a lot of details about your experience and the type of owner you are, simply reference your resume created in the first step. This is accomplished by simply providing a link to your resume in the text of your communication. For example you could write something like: For more details, please see my resume at: http://rotoresume.com/viewResume/league/id/xxx (note: xxx would be your résumé's unique number)

    Within your posting, you may reference all of the details of your experience and the type of league you are looking for simply by referencing the link to your resume, as described above.

Tips

  • The benefit of creating a resume and referencing it in multiple postings or emails is that you only need to describe yourself once. You don't have to worry about leaving something out by accident. You also only have to worry about editing your details in one place. This also assures that information about yourself provided to others is always current.
