Here is Day 13 of the March Forward Challenge. Update your post-interview thank you letter or just reach out to someone today who has helped you and sent them a thank you. Another BIG way of saying thank you is to write someone a recommendation on their LinkedIn profile. People LOVE these kinds of surprises. Don’t forget to thank your partner, friends, former colleagues, your kids, your parents, and your PAGCG family! Especially don’t forget to thank your first responders and healthcare professionals. While we are at it … THANK YOU for participating in our March Forward.

For the post-interview thank you …
Add something you have learned about the company or industry or something interesting, as everyone loves a compliment!
Share knowledge or insights on a problem they are facing because you did research on the company before interviewing.
