Writing the Thank You Letter 3

A well-written thank you letter can have a positive affect on one's candidacy. Despite this, many job seekers do not write one. Prepare a note — it just might save your candidacy.

Experienced job seekers take an hour or more to prepare a brief, tailored thank you note for each interviewer. But beware: a poorly written note with just one spelling error will almost certainly kill a good interview. Take your time, be clear, to the point, and use spelling and grammar check. The contents denote your social and communications skills. The purpose of the note, apart from thanking the interviewer for taking time to meet with you, is to stand out from the crowd and to strengthen your candidacy. Examples of a conservative approach and contents for an effective thank you letter follow: • Thank the interviewer for taking the time to meet with you. • Reiterate your interest and excitement in the position and the company. • Help the interviewer to remember you by identifying a personal connection made during the interview. • Remind the interviewer of one or two key strengths you believe are relevant and likely not possessed by competing candidates. This should be very brief and is optional. A lengthy repetition of your

résumé and what was discussed during the interview could be viewed negatively. • Include a key experience or accomplishment you forgot to mention if you believe that it is relevant to the position requirements. • Keep the note brief and less than half a page. • Attach personal or professional information requested by an interviewer or volunteered by you during the interview. Material can include a favorite restaurant, an extract of a report you previously prepared, or other supporting information. A separate note should be sent to each person met. If for some reason all names or contact information were not obtained, send the note to a key person whose contact information you know, and ask that person to pass along your appreciation to the other members of the interview team. Your thank you note should be sent within one day after the interview to achieve maximum effectiveness. Timely and wellwritten notes may influence the decision to invite a job seeker back for another round of interviews and they are expected by interviewers. A delay in receiving one can gnaw at an interviewer. Some job seekers prefer to send a handwritten note to make it more personal, even though it may take three to

five days to reach the recipient. In today's environment, speed is critical and that makes e-mail the fastest and most effective means of delivery. If you received the e-mail address of an interviewer, send the note via e-mail. If your interview was on a Friday, a paper note could be acceptable if it arrives by Monday. If you are risk-averse or believe that you did well during your interview, then remain in conservative mode. Susan believed that she established a great rapport with Scott and conveyed with convincing vignettes that she possessed the required experience for the position. Based on that assumption, she sent a friendly thank-you note, including a reminder of the Paris connection and a clear statement of excitement. A Risky Thank You Note There is another approach that falls into the high-risk, high-reward category. If the hiring manager described a major problem, such as a need to develop a business plan or to train a project team, you may wish to take the time and attach a draft solution with your thank-you note. Let's say the hiring manager complained about a business problem; you can attach a description of the problem as you understood it and provide a well-thoughtout approach to its solution.

LEWISTON, ME — Portland-based Consigli Construction Co., Inc. is ranked #1 “Best Places to Work in Maine” in the large company category. Burgess Advertising & Marketing, also located in Portland, took the same honor in the small/medium category at The Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM) Maine State Council’s awards and recognition dinner held Oct. 11 at the Ramada Conference Center in Lewiston.

Could you use 15 extra days a year to get your work done? If you always feel harried and harassed to get everything done in your life, think about getting up an hour earlier every day. By getting up just one hour earlier every day for a year, you will add 15 entire days to your life to get things done, according to Leif Hokanson of Personal Best Consulting. October 17–30, 2011

The program also helps companies that want to improve their score. The Best Companies Group’s “Employee Feedback Report” is presented to each participating company, even if it did not make the list. The report summarizes employee engagement and satisfaction data, the "Maine Benchmark Report," and the transcript of employee written comments. The report is used by many organizations to make significant improvements in their workplace culture.
