RE: Thank you notes
From: Barb Einarsen <barb -dot- einarsen -at- gnnettest -dot- com>
What an excellent habit. I have interviewed many writers. I have only
received one thank you note.
Well that's comforting, actually. I keep wondering: but what if all the other candidates are writing thank you notes too?
It put that candidate head and shoulders above
the others. It gave me a feeling of professionalism and interest.
The note didn't say anything more than you mentioned, "thanks for your time,
I'm very interested in the opportunity at your company. I look forward to
hearing from you."
I plan to copy this habit when I next look for work.
Thanks, and thanks to everyone for their responses. It looks like I'm doing the right thing and not too badly, but I have gotten a couple of ideas. They may make a difference, and they certainly can't hurt.
