every counselor/coach/recruiter in the world tells a candidate to follow up with a “thank you” note as well as a note as to what the candidate can do for the company..
well, our candidate thought he had a lousy interview so he didn’t follow up with the note…
well, the hiring authority thought the guy was great..couldn’t understand why the guy didn’t follow up..
when the candidate found out that the hiring authority really liked him, he was motivated..wrote the note….too late, the hiring authority thought about it…decided to go after someone else..
LESSON:…follow up…always follow up with a thanks!
