Give Thanks for Your Job Interviews

Happy Thanksgiving! Among the delicious food and valuable time with family, Thanksgiving is especially about taking time out of your busy schedule and being thankful for everything you have. Very often, as we have these discussions, we recognize that being grateful and giving a simple “thank you” can go a long way in building relationships. This holds true when building relationships with clients and recruiters after a job interview.

A few years ago, The Ladders interviewed 500 job seekers and hiring managers to learn more about how people say thank you, as well as how it’s received. While job seekers vary in their strategies, one thing is for certain, hiring managers definitely consider thank-you notes during their decision-making process.
