We received a hand-written cover letter from a candidate today. It’s the first one I’ve ever seen, so I’m pretty excited. (We do not require hand-written cover letters.) It sure is an easy way to stand out.
So I got to thinking–what does it mean? What goes through a candidate’s head when choosing to write a cover letter by hand? So I searched online for advice on the topic one way or the other. It turns out the only real advice I found is to never write a cover letter by hand.
