A thank you email can be challenging, so pay attention to these do’s and don’ts to ensure that your message gets through and makes the best impression…
People who have significant roles in hiring for any potential employer are constantly busy; the pieces of their puzzle are constantly moving. Whether a networking contact, recruiter or hiring manager, their attention and interests are divided.
With so many responsibilities and open positions to fill, you are not their main point of focus…
You know how to research companies, how to tweak your resume and even how to answer tough interview questions, but do you really know how to follow-up after the interview? If you’ve been invited to interview, it means the company is already interested in you. You will either seal the deal or blow the show. What can you do to woo the employer and land the job?
