Set Yourself Apart- Thank You Cards
I’ve been in HR going on 28 years. I can count on one hand how many job candidates have sent me a hand-written thank you card. The candidates who did, all have one thing in common…. they were all hired or promoted!
An e-mail thank you follow-up is important to quickly reinforce with the hiring manager that you are very interested in the position. However, no one gets mail anymore. A nice card in the mail, a few days later will not only keep your name fresh in the hiring manager's mind, it will set you apart from the other candidates.
Dear Ms. Jones,
It was a pleasure to meet and talk with you on Monday. I appreciated the opportunity to learn more about Acme Corporation and how you see the sales position role.
I believe my skills and personality match up well with what Acme Corporation is looking for in an employee.
Your insights and perspective solidified my interest in joining your team!
