I have walked into a few HR departments before, suit on body, resume in hand, only to be told to apply online.
I know that every position that opens up at my company can get hundreds of email responses and often times they just get deleted. By showing up personally to hand-deliver something you're at least separating yourself from the pack. It's a pain, but these are painful times.
See above. I have never, ever been given the opportunity to leave a resume for the HR Manager in charge of hiring for a specific position. As well, as of late I have completely unable to find out from HR Departments who is hiring for which specific job; they are simply unwilling to provide the information.
