The Importance of the Thank You Note

Struggling with your job search? Have you interviewed multiple places, and still haven’t received a phone call back? A simple thank you could be standing in your way of landing that dream job.

Thank you notes are a must. Whether it’s an informal interview or a traditional job interview, a thank you goes a long way.  According to CareerBuilder, “22 percent of employers are less likely to hire a candidate if they don’t send a thank you note after the interview. Fifty-six percent said it shows that the candidate isn’t really serious about the position, and a whopping 86 percent said it shows a lack of follow-through.”
