Don’t Forget to Say Thank You!
Posted January 16, 2013on:
So you dressed nicely, your résumé resume was perfect, and you asked smart questions. Is there anything else to nailing a job interview? There’s one more thing: the thank you note. Here are some reasons why you shouldn’t forget this little detail.
- 1. It’s good manners. Even employers want to know that you can be courteous. After all, you’ll be working with people all day long.
- 2. It shows you can communicate. If you can write a nice, genuine thank you, that’s a good sign that you actually have those communication skills that others claim to have.
- 3. You can say things you forgot. Sometimes an interview moves quickly and we don’t get to say all that we want to. The thank you note is your chance. Just keep it short.
- 4. It reminds them who you are. Sometimes employers meet a lot of people. A memorable thank you note is a great way to help you stand out.
Pay attention to the details, and it could be difference between getting the job and just interviewing for it.
