HOW TO STAND OUT IN INTERVIEWS…

SENDING A THANK YOU NOTE IS ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO STAND OUT IN AN INTERVIEW PROCESS.

JUST FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE STEPS:

  1. Buy a box of nice, clean-looking stationery from an office store. You can get one for under $15. Clean means not a lot of frills or decoration. Just a simple design that perhaps has your first initial on it.
  2. Keep the box in your car.
  3. Before you go to the interview, find out the name of the person you are meeting with. Make absolutely sure you get the correct spelling of their name.
  4. Write the name of your interviewer on the outside of one of the envelopes and put a stamp and return address on the envelope.
  5. Make sure it is in the car with your favorite pen before you go into the interview.
  6. As soon as you walk out of the interview, before you even start your car, write the thank you note. You may want to include something that stands out for you about the interview, like a common interest you had with them, or something you learned about them or the company.
  7. Drive to the nearest post office and drop the thank you note in the mail.
  8. Give yourself a pat on the back for doing something quick and easy that is going to make you stand out in a crowd of hundreds and hopefully, GET HIRED!
