Leaving The Nest - Episode 7: Tips on Writing Interview Follow Up Thank You Notes
Before we begin, I’d like to take a moment to say thank you. Thank you for tuning in, for listening, for learning, and for reaching out to us with your questions.
Saying thank you is a powerful tool, and people love to be thanked. It shows appreciation and affirmation, and it can make people feel happier.
So how do thank you notes apply in the interview process?
We recently chatted about interviewing over the phone, in person, and over a video chat. After each one of those stages, you should always be sending and following up with a thank you note to the contact(s) that you met.
And you should be doing that after each one of those stages.
It may seem repetitive to send a thank you note after each one of those stages, but it really is not. It really goes a long way. Not only are these employers taking time out of their busy schedules to meet with you and consider you for a role, but from your perspective, it is going to help make you stand out tremendously.
Welcome back to another episode of Leaving the Nest. I’m your host, Kathleen Pellegrino from ROCS Grad Staffing. Our mission is to help you find a job out of college and thrive in the real world.
In this episode, we’ll address some of the biggest questions around sending thank you notes, including when to send them, how to show you were listening during the interview, and how to have your thank you note stand out from the rest. I’ll even share a few ideas and templates you can use to get your next thank you note looking and sounding amazing.
Thanks again for listening, and I hope you enjoy it!
