Mail the Resume!

In this electronic world of submitting your resume online, filling out endless applications and being treated like a number, it’s time to take a stand. Go old school and mail your resume. Yes, print it out on good paper, write a handwritten short cover letter and hand write the address on the envelope. Get ahead of the fray and dig through Google, LinkedIn, Glassdoor etc. to figure out who you need to send the letter too – the hiring manger AND then – do it.  

It works, when is the last time you actually got a real letter? Never - right? The mail you get is just junk mail and the occasional bill that you forgot to have emailed to you.

Mail it – go old school – United States Postal Service old school! You might actually get a response from a real live person.
