Mail or Email

Mail or Email
« on: November 28, 2007, 04:35:05 PM »
A lot of firms list their email under the Careers Section of their website. Also, quite a few jobs on my law school's employer database say we can email our resumes and cover letters. If I am presented with the option of emailing the cover letter and resume, do I place myself at a disadvantage if I do so?

How about for public sector or government?

I'd rather not waste my time printing and mailing if I have a less than 1 in 100 chance of getting the job (1L, no grades, T14).

Follow the directions of the each firm's website.  Large firms usu (if not exclusively) prefer email.  Mid-size and smaller market firms may want mailed apps, but the key point is to follow the directions on each firm's website.  If you have any questions, call them up.  Additionally, make sure you have a name of the person you direct your letters to.  If you dont, call or shoot an short email asking for this info.
