I recently came across an article in Inc by Suzanne Lucas (aka “The Evil HR Lady”) that featured this bold headline: “Dear Hiring Manager, Perhaps You Should Write the Thank You Note.” She continues: “The traditional thank-you note is from candidate to hiring manager. That’s wrong … Just what, exactly, are you thanking the manager for? Taking the time to talk with you and consider your application for the job, right? But, what were you really doing?
