Question on sending info to firms

Postby newyorker88 » Tue Dec 21, 2010 6:16 pm

Random question. An upperclassmen was telling me that you're not supposed to hand write anything when you mail your info to firms; you need to use address labels. Is that true? My apologies if this is a stupid question.

Use email. It gets there faster, its cheaper, and the recruiting people can then forward on your info to the appropriate people without having to scan all your documents. Plus, handwriting is no longer an issue.

Thanks although the posting that I'm responding to specifically says to mail it and doesn't provide an email address. I don't think they're looking for emails and I don't think they would take kindly to someone ignoring their directions. But being that no one seems to have heard of the no writing only address labels rule I think I'm good.

what about judicial internships? do you generally mail those out? so we're supposed to print out mailing labels? that's bootleg.

Levels of formality:

1. Printing right on the envelope.
2. Printed mailing labels.
3. Handwriting.

The chances that this will make or break your application -- slim to none.
