Possible Interview - email or snail mail

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Sep 17, 2013 5:10 pm

Title says it all. Maybe a bit paranoid to post this, but times are tough. Top 15% at my state flag ship. Have a contact that may have set up the opportunity to receive an interview from a firm in my target city [in-state]. Directed me to send information to a partner there, rather than the hiring coordinator's office [several states away]. Worried if I snail mail, the my info may get lost, tossed out, etc.

Yes, someone told me it would look more "professional." I was surprised myself.

that's silly, especially given the time constraints (it being mid-September)

Was this person, by chance, between the ages of 49 and 67? Have they applied for jobs in the last, oh, say, fifteen years?

Email. It is vastly preferred by pretty much everyone.
