I did a year long software engineering placement with a company, and I recently noticed that they are advertising a graduate job role. When I had left the company, they said to drop them an email when it was coming up to my graduating in the summer.
I'm not sure whether I should email my previous manager now, attaching my cv etc or whether i should apply online like others would be doing, though my cv might get lost under the rest of the applications? Or should i wait until later in the year, like they said when I left?
I only just found the job posting, but the deadline is tomorrow at 4pm so not sure what the best approach that would help me get noticed without being rude.
