We live in a day and age where the average millennial sends 90 texts per day (guilty).
Now, more than ever does a thank you note go a long way. The same day you connect
with someone who you want to stay in touch with, offered you a valuable piece of
advice, interviewed with etc… write them a note! Chances sadly are they will forget
your interaction within it a few days so timing is EVERYTHING.
Some notes about your future notes:
-Choose a beautiful stationery that shows your personality
(not too much personality - keep it classy!) - they do not have to
be expensive look at Target
-Be specific and personal in what you are thanking them for
(their time, advice on xxx, sharing their experience about xxx etc.)
-Have a call to action - how you will move forward with your relationship
- you take the lead - (tell them you will in touch within the next few weeks,
ask for them to refer you to xxx, ask them to consider you
for future positions at xxx)
-Sign your name and then put in a calling card
Viola! You are now ahead of the game and just increased your own brand awareness
by showing you care and adding that extra personal touch. If you do not hear back from
whomever after you sent the note - feel free to send one email asking if they received your
note and you looking forward to staying in touch.
