Daily Interview Tip

Not following up after an interview is the biggest mistake - follow up with a thank you note. Give all your attention to the interview and the interviewer, this tells the employer you are focused on your commitments. A post-interview thank you note is an excellent way to reiterate your strongest selling points, and the reason why you want the job.
