Thank You Notes for Job Interviews

Listen to this post

Are you a part of the Thank You Revolution yet?

The Thank You Revolution by Matt McWilliams

One of my readers, Jana Botkin, recently sent me an article from CBS Local News in Minneapolis entitled, Are Hand-Written Thank You Notes Extinct?

Here is one excerpt that got me really excited:

Temp firm Accountemps did a survey of HR managers and found the most common way they get a thanks for a job interview is email — 62 percent.

Another 23 percent said thank you over the phone. As for a hand-written note, it was 13 percent.
