Happy Hot Take Hump Day!! 🌶️
Candidates, write thank you emails. Especially if you are interviewing for a client facing or sales role.
Even if the thank you email is just "Thank you for your time, I look forward to next steps."
🚫 It doesn't have to be a long love letter.
🚫 It doesn't have to be a super detailed debrief of your discussion.
🚫 You don't have to overthink it.
While it's nice for it to be customized and show you were paying attention during your interview by recalling some key points, a simple "thank you for your time" is more meaningful than nothing at all!
And, I know hiring managers who value them so much, they seriously reconsider your candidacy if you do NOT send a timely thank you email.
What is your opinion on the importance of a thank you email?
