Kick off your week with Monday Motivation!

Tip of the week

It may sound old-fashioned, but sending a “thank you” note after an interview is still an important step in the job-hunting process. Write something genuine that highlights what you appreciated and learned about the prospective employer, and also take advantage of this opportunity to mention anything that you might have forgotten to say during the meeting. If more than one person interviewed you, send a personalized thank you to each individual. If you do not have every person’s email address, ask your contact to kindly pass on your gratitude.
