You want to know how to stand out from the crowd? This is it.
An actual thank you card sent via snail mail. No, not an email or a text...an actual physical card.
You may think I'm old fashioned, out dated, in efficient. But if you really want to stand out from the crowd, this is it. Because no one does it so you will stand out.
You will be in the manager's mind again, you will be perceived as thoughtful, grateful and having attention to detail.
Who gets one? Everyone you interviewed with...yes, everyone. Everyone you interviewed with has influence on who gets hired. That is why they were asked to meet you and chat with you.
What do you say?
"Hi _____, Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to chat with me today. I am really interested in your ____ job. After chatting with you and your team, I think my skills and personality are the perfect fit to get the job done. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you again for this opportunity. Sincerely, ____"
Should I send one to people I didn't meet? (i.e.: Head of HR, VP of the Department, CEO) Nope. They don't know you, they have no context for getting a note from you and they have NO influence in the hiring decision.
So, now you know. Will you choose to stand out from the crowd?
All the best,
