Looking for a job isn't easy. Constantly worrying about your finances, the stressful task of searching for vacant positions everywhere you go. Not to mention the daunting interview process!
We've all been there. You get the call. You pump yourself up for the interview. You do a fantastic job of selling yourself to your potential employer. Then before you know it, it's all over. You breathe a sigh of relief, but then what?
But what if, unbeknownst to you, while you're waiting you're being judged for that very fact? What if there are unwritten social rules that you aren't aware of that could cost you your potential dream job?
In the article, Jessica states, “As a hiring manager, you should always expect a thank-you email, and you should never make an offer to someone who neglected to send one.”
Jessica's claim caused a big debate online about whether or not this "unwritten rule" was an acceptable enough reason for an employer not to hire someone.
Many people felt it was unfair to dismiss a candidate who could potentially be a valuable employee, based solely on the fact that they didn't send a thank you email after their interview.
