WebXtra: Hittin' the pavement on a job hunt

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - When looking for a new job, which is better, sending a resume, or applying in person? We went to local business to find out.

Surprisingly, we found quite a few help wanted signs in windows. When asked about applying in person versus applying online several employers said that applying in person is the way to go.

They said it's better to actually see the person and get to know them than to just see a piece of paper.

One hair salon said knowing how the potential employee looks determines who they hire. For this reason they only use window advertisments when looking for employees.

We will have more information on the businesses we found on KLTV News at 6.
