Snippet: the thank you note

While it is not really a common thing to do, especially here in Asia, a letter of thanks sent after a job interview can make all the difference in the world.

Certain employers can be influenced in a positive manner, if they receive a “thank you” letter from an applicant. The “thank you” letter can be viewed as a sample of your work, and the way you convey your gratitude on paper can work hugely in your favour.
