Are you in the habit of sending hand-written thank you notes after interviews, and to anyone who helps you move toward achieving your career goals?

Clients have told me that thank-you notes were the deciding factor in landing a new job. The decision was down to the wire. My clients sent thank you’s, the others didn’t. The people hiring them said they were so impressed by the effort that it tipped the scales in my clients’ favor.
