Coffee with Kenny: A Dying Art?

In this installment of Coffee with Kenny, Kenny will discuss how we receive fewer and fewer hand-written thank you notes by "snail mail."  We advise candidates that this is a great way to stand out when applying for a job in today's world of electronic communication.   Internally, we make it a practice to send thank you notes to add a personal touch.  Are hand-written thank you notes a dying art?
