Mind Your Manners
Thanksgiving season is a great time to put the gratitude glasses on and find ways to see the effort and impact of those around you. While we think anytime is a good time to give thanks and praise for people showing up and doing their best, the season of gratitude helps remind us to see through this lens.
We recently had a hiring manager report back that 3 out of 4 of the candidates they interviewed didn't send a thank you note following their interview. YIKES! Guess who got the job? Yep, the one candidate who said, "thanks." While that certainly was not the reason they landed the offer, it was something the hiring manager noticed and gave them an extra star for it. While candidates are often caught up in doing their best to crush an interview, remember that hiring managers add about 100 hours to their plate to hire a new employee, and it isn't a revenue-generating task, so PSA to candidates, don't forget to say thank you!
Now that I got that off my chest, there are more thank you's that need to be sent out. Thanks ;) for reading!
While cursive isn't taught in elementary schools anymore, handwritten notes should not be underrated. To anyone in a leadership position, dropping a handwritten note shows time and thought taken for that person. Try to do one a week and see if it brews a warmer climate in your workplace. 10/10 would recommend trying this at home too!
With that, we also want to say "thank you" to our PGAA Tax network. We appreciate your trust in delivering talented candidates to your tax team. To our candidates, we are so grateful to be facilitators of achieving your career dreams because that is what it is all about! Thank you, and we wish you a gratitude-filled Thanksgiving season!
