TAKE THE TIME FOR A HANDWRITTEN THANK YOU
Regardless of industry, business professionals receive hundreds of emails and texts a day. In this increasingly digital age, do not underestimate the value of a handwritten thank you note after an interview with a potential employer or recruiter. Employers will remember opening an envelope as opposed to an email and will appreciate the extra time you took to sign, seal, and deliver your note. Remember: a thank you note is another opportunity to market yourself and reconnect with potential employers. You can be gracious and strategic at the same time. Be sure to include at least one memorable point from your conversation or interview, it will help you stand out as a candidate!
Darnell likes to tell the young attorneys we work with, “Be kind, be tenacious, and be organized.” The simple act of sending a handwritten thank you note shows future employers that you are all three!
