In our competitive job market, many candidates are competing for each position. There is only one winner and there’s no prize for second place.
Everyone looking for a job has heard that it’s important to send a thank you note. But the percentage who follow through is small.
That means, sending a thank you note is a sure way to stand out in a positive way.
It’s one of the quickest, and easiest, ways to get an employer’s attention. To keep you top-of-mind once the interview is over.
Here are 5 ways to make sure you continue to be remembered in a good way.

Send a thank you ASAP. Try to email a note as soon as you can. Have a thank you template that you can revise as needed depending on the specific job interview. Unless your handwriting is illegible you might want to follow up with a handwritten note as well. When was the last time you received anything besides a business letter in the office mail?
