The Importance of the Post-Interview “Thank You”

Give Thanks – or Your Chance for that Job Could Be Cooked [INFOGRAPHIC]



Thanksgiving’s next week – have you taken the time yet to be thankful during your job search?

In a recent survey by online job-matching service Ladders, more than 75 percent of interviewers reported that receiving a thank you note impacts their hiring decision.

“Many job seekers believe that the interview is over once they step out of the office, but that’s simply not the case,” said Amanda Augustine, then a job search expert at Ladders. “Based on my decade-long experience in conducting interviews, I can attest first-hand that failure to follow-up can be the deciding factor in rejecting a candidate who is otherwise a great fit.”

At a networking event, have you ever:

  • Felt intimidated or uncomfortable in a room full of strangers?
  • Been so nervous you made some awkward moves going for the handshake?
  • Worried about saying or doing the wrong thing?
  • Questioned whether you reacted appropriately to something someone said or did?
  • Struggled to remember names? What was said just moments before? Conversations you had with someone you’d met previously?

How to Ace Your First-Round (or Really, Just About Any) Interview

Think Like an Interviewer – Q16



Nowadays, it’s not enough to just be able to do the job. When we ask hiring managers to describe their ideal candidates, they often say creative problem solvers who can adapt quickly and effectively to any situation (particularly unanticipated ones), like changes to customer requirements and technologies. That’s why you often get asked interview questions that assess your competence in these areas.

“Tell me about a project you worked on that required heavy analytical thinking” is one of these questions, and a behavioral one at that. Remember, during a behavioral interview, the interviewer asks about your experience overcoming (or succumbing to) obstacles in the workplace, under the premise that past behavior predicts your on-the-job performance. As such, your interviewer wants to hear a specific work-related example of when you successfully applied your analytical thinking skills.

How to Ace Your First-Round (or really, Just about Any) Interview

Think Like an Interviewer – Q11



“Tell me about yourself.”

It’s a four-word request that seems simple enough – after all, who knows knows you better than you? – but it’s perhaps the one inquiry out of the 19 most commonly asked interview questions that can make job seekers sweat the most. Why? Because it’s such a vague request, there are so many places you can take your response – and consequently, so many ways you can go wrong.

How to Ace Your First-Round (or Really, Just About Any) Interview

Think Like an Interviewer – Q9



Over the last few weeks, we’ve been discussing the reasons behind the most commonly asked interview questions and how to provide answers that address them effectively. This week, let’s take a look at a question intended to gauge your confidence level: “Why should I hire you?”

(If you’re a loyal CareerJuice reader, you may remember closely examining this question with us before. However, keep reading, as this post will serve as both a refresher course and an advanced addendum.)

Opportunities to sell yourself as the valuable asset the company needs can be found in questions such as:

  • Why should I hire you?
  • What can you do for the company?
  • What would you contribute to the company?
  • What do you have to offer the company?
  • How would you add value to the company?
  • Why should you be chosen over other candidates who have equal if not stronger qualifications or more experience?

How to Ace Your First-Round (or Really, Just About Any) Interview

Think Like an Interviewer – Q6



When you’re hit with a brainteaser like “If you were to get rid of one state in the US, which would it be and why?” at your next interview, don’t sweat it! Interview questions like this are supposed to challenge how you react and think under pressure. Can you think on your feet and stay cool when the heat gets turned on, both in the interview and on the job?

As is the case with most of these crazy oddball questions, your interviewer is far less concerned with your answer and more interested in your approach. The actual state you choose is irrelevant. This particular question is intended to assess your analytical, decision-making, and communication skills. The interviewer wants to see if you’re able to set priorities and make a case for them.
