    Do most employers want you to call them in order to find out if they are hiring or would they rather you come in person?  Some might think that they don't want to be bothered and so calling would be better, while maybe others want to meet candidates face to face.  What do you think is the best way?

      On the job application, if they give you the option to drop your resume off in person, you should drop it off in person.

      An added touch would be to send them an e-mail a couple of hours before you're going to drop it off in person. This e-mail should contain an attachment of your resume along with some basic info about about yourself. The body of the e-mail should contain an interesting quote.

      Once you drop the resume in person, there's a very good chance you might get an interview on the spot.

      Be sure to send a thank you e-mail around midnight so they will read it the next morning.

      Finally, make sure you show up in person around slow business hours (depends on industry). Don't show up on Monday, Mondays are always busy. Don't show up on Friday afternoon when all people are doing is watching the clock. Usually afternoons Tuesday to Thursday is the best.
