Recently, I read a blogpost on a jobseeker site asking on advice on interviews. This candidate mentioned that s/he wrote a handwritten thank you note to each one of the hiring managers after the 1st interview process.

For any new social media website to come to market will include a blog site for example: MySpace, Facebook, Twitter and even LinkedIn.…Continue
