If i plan to make a visit in the very near future to the area, is it acceptable to send an email to the legal recruiter and let them know?
Yes. This is information that should be included in a cover letter if you know when you're writing. Otherwise, let them know (or, if you did, follow up a few weeks before your visit if you haven't heard anything.). Make sure you do this at least a few weeks before your visit, if you can.
Well, i sent my application about two weeks ago and have not heard back yet. I plan to visit the area in about two and a half weeks. I figure that if I plan to let them know, I should do it sooner than later. Is email an acceptable method? It feels so informal, but snail mail would be short notice...
thanks for the info!
