Should I Send a Thank You Letter Before The Weekend? | Job Search Radio

Should you send a thank you letter before the weekend or just wait till afterwards?



Should I send a thank you letter before a long holiday weekend or after?  Either or.

Many people would say, “Don’t send it before the weekend.”  After all, the person is probably trying to get out the door, isn’t real interested, wait until Tuesday.  Some people will say that by Tuesday they may have forgotten about you anyway.  What do you do? It’s quite a dilemma.

Send one before the weekend. And, if you don’t hear anything from them, send one afterwards!

You could send one Tuesday, late in the day saying, “I just want to make sure you saw this. I know you’re busy.  You may have left early on Friday, but I just want you to know that I was interested in the opportunity. I really appreciate that the time that we spent with one another.  I look forward to hearing from you about next steps.

It doesn’t have to be one or the other.  There is the 3rd way and I think that one is the better way.

You already know you can’t trust recruiters—they tell as they think you need to know to take the job they after representing so they collect their payday.

The skills needed to find a job are different yet complement the skills needed to do a job.
