Your job interview went great, both the conversation and connection was great, but you want to do something more, something that will make the employer remember you.
In many cases, people think the interview is done once they leave the employer's building, however, in reality it has just started. The vast majority of employers and hiring managers will expect a thank-you note once the interview is done, and they pay close attention to who writes first and how long after the meeting they receive the message.
It’s very important that you remember to send your e-mails to the respective hiring managers, as this will likely place you higher on the hiring-ladder, and maybe you will land the job you were looking for.
It’s important that you keep the same formality in the thank-you email as you had during the interview. If the interview was more informal, go with a slightly more informal tone.
So, how to do it?
