You’ve heard it before. Sending a thank you card post interview is essential. Well, as the tradition stands, it’s important not to neglect this step during the interview process. Remember, you want the interviewer to remember you! So, how can you take a generic thank you note to new heights? For one, send a thank you email to your interviewer within 24 hours of your meeting. In your email, highlight the best parts of the conversation you had with the interviewer, and a final reminder as to why you'd be perfect for the job. Second, send a hand written thank you card in addition to your email in the mail. This will show the interviewer that you went out of your way to write a personal note and purchase a card. We at Expert Recruiters love when candidates add this personal touch and hope our tip will help you make a lasting impression that will lead you closer to your dream job!
This article rings true for most Recruiting Consultants out there. We have all been guilty of dropping the ball accidentally on following up with our candidates with feedback during the interview process. It is important to remember that our business relies on building and sustaining relationships. A quick follow up email or phone call is the best way to ensure your candidates stay interested and in the loop while the process is ongoing.
I like many other Talent Specialists, review an enormous number of resumes for the roles that I work on. This article has some valid points that job seeking professionals should review to make your profile stand out from the rest. Your resume should market your talent and experience however it should also bring some of your personality. It is important to make sure the first part of your resume, (the summary) that we read makes HR professionals want to continue reading. It does not need to be over complicated or too wordy, think of it as a proposal highlighting what makes you the right person for the role. Once you get in the door, you will have the opportunity to elaborate on all your skills and experience.
