|This time of year can bring many emotions, both positive and negative. The joy of being with the ones you love, the fear of family drama, the excitement of the new year, and the anxiety around inquiries from distant relatives like, “when are you having kids?” or “tell me about your job!” Whatever you are feeling this holiday season, don’t let the worry of a new job get the best of you. When it comes to job seeking, we can put your worries at ease. You may even be able to make your interviewer’s day by putting some cheer into their holidays. Don’t believe us? Read on…
We have discussed this topic in the past, but new light has been brought to the topic. It is easy to make excuses, isn’t it? Why take the time to write a thank you note if no one is going to read it, or worse, scrutinize it… Quite the contrary. Researchers who published an article earlier this year, were surprised to find that people grossly underestimate the positive feelings a simple thank you email or note can bring.
People are often concerned that:
– Their note won’t be read
– Their note will be scrutinized
– Their note will seem insincere
– It will just be a waste of time
It was found that recipients value the extra step of sending the note, even if it’s simple. The warmth of a simple thank you note can bring more cheer than you might imagine. Take the extra time this holiday season, and always, to send your thank you notes. You just might brighten someone’s day and get a new job to boot! When Uncle Billy asks, “how’s that job coming along?” you will have the perfect answer.
