I ordered a very very cheesy pizza (yum!) during a callback interview.  Needless to say, they dinged me.
Who needs a firm when you got pizza?

Would you suggest sending the materials on plain white or cotton resume/business paper? I used the pricey stuff for 1L summer mailings but was wondering if firms actually prefer regular paper...

I think thin-ish white cotton paper is probably the credited answer.  Obviously send it in a full-length envelope.

Full length?! Regular business envelopes are a no go?! :(

Which do you prefer to read: paper with large creases or paper without large creases?

I suppose the creaseless paper, but resume envelopes tend to be regular business size, and common practice seems to be to send regular envelopes.

So what's the credited thing to do then? Big manila envelope probably isn't that great either...

I agree with everything botbot has said, but I won't to strongly incourge beasr to network as well. In this economy you can't realy on just or OCI or mass mailing, you need to add every job finding technique to your quiver, use them all, don't rely on one to the exclusion of others.
*In clinical studies, Matthies was well tolerated, but women who are pregnant, nursing or might become pregnant should not take or handle Matthies due to a rare, but serious side effect called him having to make child support payments.

Professional class white mailers are available at Staples and Office Depot.

And I would do it again!  It was great pizza!  Cost me ~20k in SA money, but whatever.  Life is short.

How are you networking?  Drunk-dialing?  Meeting up with people at restaurants?
