Why you Should Thank your Interviewer

For many job seekers, the holiday season often means a bit of a slow-down in the job hunt. But, with 2013 right around the corner, this is a good time to take a fresh look at your approach to the practical aspects of your job search. Among the many things to consider when interviewing, many job seekers wonder whether or not to write a thank-you note. Thank-you notes are an important personal form of communication in our less-formal, more-anonymous online culture and can help you land the job.

Thank-you notes are always appropriate and should be sent to everyone with whom you interview. Not only do they show that you are a professional and appreciate an interviewer’s time, but they also provide the perfect opportunity to reiterate your desire to work for that particular company.  Well-written thank-you letters turn ‘potentials’ into ‘hires’, so make sure that you always take the time after an interview to write one.
