I have just finished my master's thesis which dealt with driver development for a larger company's devices. I believe this work might be interesting for the company since they only recently started their research in this area and are currently actively marketing it. If not, it would at least show that I am more acquainted with their products at a low level than other applicants.
So I thought I should mention it when applying there but I'm not sure to which extent. I'm thinking of three options:
- Only add the title to the resume.
- Summarize what I did in a paragraph in the cover letter.
- Include the complete thesis with the application. (I'm aware that nobody will read the complete thesis but it might at least prove that I'm not lying?)
In case you recommend me point #3 I'd need some advice on how to apply: The company seems to advertise open positions only through their own careers portal. Right now, there is one open position which would match very well with what I did in the thesis. However, I'm only able to upload one PDF file (the CV) there. I've found a recruiting@ email address but it seems that it hasn't been used for at least 2 years. The last option would be to send a paper letter (maybe as an unsolicited application) to the general company address but I'm wondering whether this it not too old-fashioned and an overkill because of the extra 80 pages.
I appreciate your help!
