Remember what your mother told you!

Posted By Lily McCall, GAIN intern, Friday, November 19, 2010
Remember when your mother always told you to say please and thank you? Well that was good practice for searching for a job. One of the most important things to do is always say thank you... in as many was as possible. After that informational interview or that actual interview be sure to send an email thank you AND a handwritten thank you to pop into the snail mailbox.

Sending a thank you note ensures that some piece of paper with your name and business card will a) remind them you exist a few days later b) make them feel happy and more likely to help you and c) possibly sit on their desk for a few weeks for them to constantly be reminded of your job search. The best $0.44 cents you’ve ever spent!
