With such a competitive job market, it is getting harder and harder to get noticed by employers. One way to stand out from the crowd is to follow-up with thank you greeting cards after every interview. The employer will appreciate the gesture and recognize that you are a responsible, organized candidate.
It is a good idea to send a thank you card the day after a job interview. When selecting a thank you card to impress an employer, choose a bold, professional design that will get noticed. Include a hand-written note thanking the recipient for taking the time to meet with you and mention that you are looking forward to hearing from him/her regarding the final decision. Also, reference something specific from the interview to signal that you were actively engaged and paying attention to the details. When addressing the envelope, show respect by using a formal title, like Mr. or Mrs., and include the recipient's professional title in the address block.
Sending a thank you card won't guarantee you get the job, but it will give you a much needed edge over those who choose not to send a card.
