You just finished your interview and need to send a thank you note, but questions abound. Is email okay or does it need to be a hand written note? What should I say in my note? How formal does it have to be? I met X number of people during my day of interviewing, to whom should I send a thank you?
First off, saying thank you is a must – it shows professionalism, client relationship skills, etc. That being said, almost any efforts you make to say thank you are better than no effort at all. The exception could be saying thank you over a social media site like Twitter, MySpace, or Facebook…or using language that is too casual/unprofessional. Remember, this is your last impression with the hiring manager. Make it a good one.
Over the next few posts in the coming days, let’s debate the parameters of what makes a good thank you note. Look forward to reading your comments.
