Last year around this time, we talked about showing gratitude at work (it is Thanksgiving, after all).
In response to this popular post, many of you wrote to me, saying: "My mom made me write thank you cards too!" Or, something that really caught my attention...
"I hate it when I interview someone, and
(s)he doesn't write me a thank you note.
An email is okay, but I expect a real note."
If you're reading this and thinking, "Wait, seriously? Like a real note? Like a note where you have to lick the envelope and pay to mail it?"
First of all: yes, that kind of note.
Second of all: you're in luck.
Laura Bauman from Career Contessa has compiled a few simple, practical tips - and even a template - on How to Write a Post-Interview Thank You Letter.
I'd love to hear your experience: Have you ever hired - or not hired - someone because of a thank you note? Recruiters, do you expect notes? Recent college graduates, do you write thank you notes?
PS - on being grateful
