For general labour I would recommend dropping off a resume at the mill. If you email your resume it's easier to delete. A physical resume at least gets filed away until there's an actual job opening.
Also if you drop off a resume more than once, maybe every couple of months, they'll pay more attention to your name.
Most important, proof read your resume or ask someone to look it over for you.
Not very easily!
