A Simple Way to Stand Out

You can stand out from the crowd in a lot of different ways. Some ways are good and some bad—the good ways usually take hard work or natural abilities. But what if there was a way to stand out well that didn’t take a lot of energy or a certain skill set? There couldn’t be such a thing or everyone would be doing it, right?

It’s amazing that you will stand out and make a great impression by doing this because so many people look over it or forget to do it. What we’re talking about here are thank you letters.

Your mom may have taught you to write them when you were young, and you’ve been told by your business professors that they are important, but for some reason you still don’t use them.

These can be used  for follow up in several scenarios including, but not limited to:

  • Job interviews
  • Job offers
  • Informational meetings/interviews
  • Gifts
  • Recommendations
  • Investments in you or your company
  • Networking

The internet is full of templates for how these should look if you feel like you need help getting started. Try to turn this one into a habit!
