5. It sets you apart.
If you are sending a follow-up note after an interview (always a good idea) then you want to make sure you stand out among the rest of the candidates. Depending on your field, a handwritten note may make just the kind of impression you want. If you are in a creative role (interior designer, graphic design, fashion etc.) then a handwritten card “…can be a smart branding opportunity” says Barbara Pachter, etiquette expert and author of The Essentials of Business Etiquette.

Snail mail is on a major decline in this age where technology trumps all other forms of communication. By writing notes by hand and sending them the old-school way, you’ll be supporting the USPS and helping to maintain jobs in a dying industry.
