It's a pretty AGONIZING period between a job interview and waiting to hear whether or not you're getting hired. But there actually is SOMETHING you can do to help your chances after the interview. It's kinda old-fashioned, but it works.
According to a new survey by the job website The Ladders, 76% of interviewers say that receiving a THANK-YOU NOTE influences their decision. And only 11% say it has no impact.
You used to have to actually write out a thank-you note and mail it. But you don't have to do that today. 85% of people say an email thank-you note is good . . . and might actually be BETTER because it's quicker.
Interviewers say the best notes are the ones that come within 24 hours of the interview.
And send a thank-you note to EVERYONE you meet. Individually. And make sure the emails are all customized and different.
