Why You Must Send a Thank You Note After Every Job Interview

Really want to be selected for the job?
Read the article below to learn more about how to increase your chances of being selected for your dream job.

"We were surprised to learn that over 75% of the people surveyed did not receive any kind of thank you note from most of the candidates they interviewed, and for 30% of those surveyed, no follow up meant no further steps for the candidate."

"One hiring manager remarked, “The follow up is the lynchpin for me. If the interview goes well and I feel invigorated and excited about someone, I wait to see what kind of follow up efforts they put forth.”
