So you’ve spent hours perfecting that resumé and finally landed that interview. You met with the manager and everything went well...now what?

Over 300 HR managers were surveyed and 80% of them say that sending a follow-up email or thank-you note increases your chances of getting hired. However, only 24% of people do it, a 51% decrease from just 10 years ago. When asked how to do it, most HR managers said a quick email thanking them is just fine.

Do NOT try to get fancy, though! At least half of managers say they hate phone calls, and 95% of them say sending a follow-up text message is unprofessional.
