THANK YOU! Two of the most powerful words in the human language…
One of the most important pieces to networking, and the job process, is the thank you note. Every time you conduct an informational interview or do an onsite interview for a job, you need to send a thank you note.
Thank you notes should be sent no later than 24 hours after your interview or conversation. These thank you notes are crucial to your success and your ability to further your relationship.
I can’t stress enough the importance of writing a genuine thank you note because if you don’t write one, not only are your chances of getting hired lower, but your chances of continuing to develop the relationship are lowered.
A thank you note takes all but 5-10 minutes to craft, but it can make a lasting impact. Here are the 4 essentials to include when crafting an excellent and memorable thank you note.
1. Thank the person for taking the time to speak with you
2. Mention one idea you learned or enjoyed
3. Mention one message you will take away and apply to your daily life
4. Thank the person again and let him/her know you will be in touch
