Job seekers appear to be missing out on a prime opportunity by neglecting to thank their interviewers. More than three-quarters (76 per cent) of 100 Canadian executives polled said sending a thank you note following an interview can improve a candidate’s chances. But, they estimate that only one in five (20 per cent) actually does so. These numbers are down slightly from five years ago, when 79 per cent of executives thought it influential to send thanks and 23 per cent of applicants took the time to thank their interviewer.
