Job Hunting Zen Thought of the Week – October 9, 2015

Here is your Job Hunting Zen Thought of the Week!

You interviewed this week for a job. You didn't blow the interview, but you didn't exactly wow the hiring manager, either. In short, you demonstrated you could perform the duties of the job, but you didn't really close the deal.

There's still hope!

A well-written "thank you" note to the interviewers could still get you the job. Demonstrate your passion for the position and the company by sending an eloquent, thoughtful note. Reiterate those topics you found of particular interest. Demonstrate how you can demonstrate value to the organization.

A hiring manager who wanted to continue searching may decide you're the right fit after all.
