Mass 'mail' to firms?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Dec 21, 2012 10:41 pm

Hi,

I'm applying for SA, and I'm coming across firms that provide both snail mail address, and email address for SA applications. Is one better than the other? Or should I just always do emails only?

Thanks!

First, best of luck, but why are you so late in this process?
Second, e-mail....
Third, best of luck, but you might be late for firms with traditional SA classes. Try smaller firms and hope for 3l oci.

Not sure if serious... I would mail incredibly general letters to biglaw, and expect 99% to reject in a few days. Focus on smaller and MAYBE mid sized firms. Biglaw will be hard for ANYONE to get, let alone if you have not started a job seeking campaign yet. Despite all of this, best of luck.

OP here, sigh... I've been just mood swinging, and had no motivation to do anything. Anyways thanks for the genuine help. Yes I am aiming small and mid sized firms.

One more question: when a firm asks for a ONE PAGE cover letter, does that mean including the headings and everything? Or just a heading-less cover letter?

One page = one page. A cover letter should be in cover letter format.

Email is better, either is fine, do not do both.

Cover letter should be about a paragraph or two of writing (I mean, not very much, who cares exactly how much). The whole thing should fit on one page.
