i find it really annoying when i send off an application and they reply via post even though i've provided my email address and mobile number. If they emailed me i could have the answer much sooner than if they sent a letter. Also for graduate schemes they must realise that people won't be at their home a lot in term time so actually getting hold of the response can be a bit of an pain in the the neck.

I was just wondering if there is an actual practical reason for this or have some companies just not caught up with the times?

I dunno. Maybe they are trying to make themselves look more prestigious. If I sent u an offer letter sealed with red candle wax you'd probably think that my company was da bees knees

Paper always seems a bit more official and perhaps shows that they have a greater consideration for you. I have received a good deal of email applications though.

I work in HR and we send out offer letters because they must be signed by the new employee. The letter will have all conditions in it which you must agree with.
