Communication ~ Saying Thank you is a great idea

When it comes to communication there are so many ways to communicate and sometimes people just don’t know where to begin but in this post we are going to talk about where to end. I will go back to the beginning later but I was working with a client earlier and the client wanted to know why it is so important to say thank you to an employer after an interview. It is a courtesy that many people simply don’t do…so if you do…you stand out from the rest of the applicants. Thank you doesn’t have to be a formal letter if you are not the type of person to write formal letters. A thank you can be a simple note…the front of the card should be very simple with just the words Thank you on the front and then you write a short note inside that simply says…
Dear_________
I would like to thank you for your time and attention during the interview today and I am looking forward to the next step in the process and hopefully becoming part of your team.

Sincerely

sign your name

Yes it is that easy and it can be a great idea to leave it with the receptionist when you leave the interview so that when the interviewer is done for the day and very tired…they get a nice little thank you for all the hard work they did today.

Thank you for reading my blog…I appreciate your time.

Loretta
