Awesome question! Only a small portion of candidates send a thank you after an interview, it is those individuals that make it to the top of the pile. Now a thank you note is so much more than a polite way of saying thank you, it is also a chance to prove one is the best candidate for the job. Such as address any mistakes that you may have made in the interview, revisit any unanswered questions, and most importantly show that you’re invested in the position and company. Even if you do not end up getting the job, sending a thank you note is a great way to network for later opportunities. Also, in today society one has two options of a thank you note either hand written or email.
