College Grad Do's & Dont's of Interviews (3)

5. The Aftermath

The wrong way: Leave the interview and forget about it.

The right way: Send a thank you note. Career experts disagree on the topic of thank you notes. Some advocate the typed letter that succinctly outlines the major points mentioned during the interview and why you'd be a good fit for the job.

Others, like Kahn, prefer something more personalized. "Look around the interviewer's office. If she likes cats, try to find a card that shows you paid attention to what they're interested in," she says. Whether it's a card with cats or a letter typed on official stationery, one thing's for sure: You need to send something, preferably via "snail mail," says Challenger. "It's important to just do it, and do it quickly," he says. "It's the right way to complete that stage of the interview process."
