Managers Say Thank-You Letters are Essential

Managers Say Thank-You Letters are Essential:

70% said e-mailing thank-you notes was appropriate, especially to acknowledge a small gift or gesture (Recent survey by the Emily Post Institute).
Thank-you notes are mandatory and expected in some situations. A survey in August 2005 by CareerBuilder.com found that:

Nearly 15 percent of hiring managers would reject a job candidate who neglected to send a thank-you letter after the interview
32 percent said they would still consider the thankless prospect but that their opinion of him or her would diminish
Nearly a quarter (23 percent) of managers prefer handwritten thank-yous
21 percent seek a typed hard copy
19 percent want e-mailed thank-yous followed up with a snail-mailed letter
