Sending in the hard copy
I just finished sealing my resume and cover letter in an envelope headed for a very special employer, one that makes my 8-year-old self more excited than going to Disney World (which my 8-year-old self didn’t enjoy nearly as much as the awesome learning land of Epcot) and one that my fuzzball cat would approve of.
Yes, I’m sending a hard-copy job application (in addition to the online one I sent a few days ago), the first one I’ve sent since I graduated from college, a time when crafters sold on eBay instead of Etsy. I’m doing this because Clue Wagon told me to, and I am very open to action-oriented job-related advice right now. But not the advice that told me to Twitter my way to a job. That advice only raised my blood pressure trying to keep up with Twitter.
