How to Follow Up After a Job Interview

How to follow up after a job interview
As a stationery company, we value the importance of the handwritten note and going the extra step after a job interview to mail a thank you note. If you are wondering how to follow up after a job interview, here are our 8 tips to help you get a step ahead of the competition.

  1. Don’t underestimate the power of a handwritten thank you note. It is not only an essential part of job interview etiquette, it is the perfect opportunity to hammer home the key points you want your interviewer to remember about you.
  2. Hand write, don’t email. This is your chance to impress the interviewer. They took time out of their busy day to meet with you, so show your appreciation by taking time to hand write a note and mail it. You will stand out next to others applying for the job.
  3. Send a thank you card to everyone who interviewed you.

We asked three Pear Tree employees who’ve recently moved for their best moving tips. As usual, they were full of great ideas, and in agreement about several. Here are their moving tips:

From Andrea, Pear Tree’s brand strategist:

  • Label the boxes. This seems obvious, but I also labeled where I wanted the box to be put in the new house, like “Kids’ Puzzles—Bonus Room” or “Towels—Master Bath.”

5 tips on how to write a thank you card

  1. Write it right away. Preferably while the event is fresh in your mind. Nothing is harder than trying to remember details of a conversation, dinner party or event, weeks after it happened. If you write the thank you note quickly, it’ll be easier to come up with specific things to mention, perhaps a funny moment or a thoughtful touch you appreciated. Wedding thank you cards you can take a little longer, but most etiquette books suggest sending them within 2-3 months.
  2. Specific is better. Anybody can write a generic thank you note, and we’ve all gotten them: “Thanks for the blankety blank. I really appreciate it. Thanks again. Love, Julie.” Much better to mention exactly what you’re thanking this person for, and add something specific about why you liked it.

A customer service story with a notable ending

thank you noteA few weeks ago, I had to bring my car into the shop to get it checked out. Since I had recently moved to town, I asked friends for recommendations and wound up bringing it to a small, locally-owned place in town.

From the beginning, I was pleased with their service. I was able to drop it off in the morning, and one of the employees was kind enough to meet me there before opening and give me a ride to work. Later that day they called to tell me they had found a serious safety issue with the car, completely unrelated to the problems I’d been having. Despite a heavy workload, they were able to get the parts and have them installed the very next day.

When I picked up the car, I found a small package of jelly beans with a handwritten note that said, “Thank you for supporting our locally-owned business.” I had a great feeling about them and knew I’d be going back to them when necessary. Well, that turned out to be sooner than expected.
