A thank you note is not enough

Perhaps a bit intense, but a good piece on how to follow up on an interview.  HT: Chad Harper

"Don’t let anyone convince you that employers don’t care about thank-you notes after job interviews. Good business people value courtesy and follow-up. But you can take a thank-you note a step further: Fill it with help and expertise.

For example: “Thanks for the stimulating discussion. Each time we talk, I’m more intrigued and excited about the prospect of working with you. In the meantime, you might be interested in this article I ran across. It’s on the subject of xyz, and I think some of these ideas might be applied to the challenge you’re facing that we discussed in our meeting. Best regards." more at the link above.
