An advice from the authors
After an interview, consider whether you would take that particular job over similar alternatives.
Any job is better than no job, it is more often true that the wrong job is a disaster.
Once you submit an application and resume to a workplace, continue to find other places to apply to.
For each interview, send a thank-you note to the interviewer.
In the forms of:EmailHandwritten on stationaryStandard business letter
Check for misspelled words, especially names.
Use the correct format.Reference- http://adresnet.com/businessletter.html
Contact the interviewer one week after the hiring decision date.
If rejected, ask what you could have done better.
If you have decided against the company, follow-up anyways for good practice
If rejected from a position, brush it off and keep going.
Recall what you did well and learn what could have been done differently.
Every interview, regardless of outcome, strengthens your skills for your next interviews.
