It may be one of the most commonly dispensed pieces of job-search advice, but sending the ‘right’ thank you note after an interview really is crucial.
Here’s the deal with thank-you notes:
* If you’re not the best candidate for the job, a thank-you note isn’t going to change that. No one is going to hire a less qualified candidate just because of a thank-you note.
* If you’re the undisputed top candidate, the lack of a thank-you note probably isn’t going to stop you from being hired.
* However, when the decision is close between you and another candidate, a right type of thank-you note can definitely tilt the scales in your direction.
There are hiring managers who don’t care at all about thank-you notes. But that shouldn’t dissuade you from sending them because there are also plenty of hiring managers who will tell you that a thank-you note has swayed their hiring decisions.
And as the candidate, you have no idea which type you’re dealing with … so of course you should send thank-you’s.
The problem is that most job seekers waste their time by sending send a note that has no chance of ‘sealing the deal’.
