Thank You Notes/Letters

It turns out your mother was right: as short as they are, thank you notes are incredibly important. Whether or not you write one could make the difference between whether or not you get the job, so don't leave it up to chance and take a few minutes to write one!

Send it within one to two days following your interview. Whether you send the letter via email or snail mail, it doesn’t matter—as long as you are professional and prompt. It's the right thing to do, and it shows you have professional etiquette, which will make you stand out.
