Your new baby has brought so much joy into your life—and so many gifts! You know you really should get started on those thank you notes, if you can just find the time between feedings! But somehow the box of thank you notes you bought before she was born don’t seem to convey her personality at all.
And now for a bit of interview etiquette. You just had the greatest job interview of your life and you want to do everything in your power to seal the deal. What do you do next?
Don’t underestimate the power of the 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.
Job interview etiquette dictates that you send thank you cards to everyone who interviewed you, even if you’re not sure you want the job. This message can be as simple as “Thank you for seeing me. I really appreciate the time.” But if you are serious about the job, it should convey much more than that.
Some of the most thoughtful ideas we hear from our customers have to do with thanking others around the holidays. One mom we know encourages each child to choose an extended family member and write a thank you card to express their appreciation for that person, or for something they did that meant a lot to the child.
