It actually turned out to be a bad practice in HR and recruitment. You may not know but it is true that this little gesture can weigh heavily in your favor but not an important criterion in hiring a person. So how the importance of a thank-you note after an interview and what is the right direction in thinking about this special letter? With many years of experience in HR and Recruitment advisor, Faro Vietnam will help you find out the answer.
What is thank – you letter?
Thank-you letter is part of "proper" candidate etiquette. Nobody knows exactly where these etiquette rules derive from, but they become popular in HR and recruitment agencies.
Through a thank-you letter, the recruiter could see candidates’ writing and communication skills, which show their professional working manner in their future career
However, HR recruitment companies advise that it is a sign of discrimination if you hire someone just because they send a thank-you note. Hr recruitment consultant always use an objective skill assessment. You are going to hire a person based on their skill, capability, and basically, everything else that is job-related, and there is no need for a thank-you note to tell you who is the best for the job. One of our HR and recruitment advisors said that: "This kind of thing will only drive the best one away and it will hurt your employer and your brand in the long run.” Some candidates have reasons not to send this special email, probably didn't think it was important, or it was not part of the custom in their hometown, or even they never heard about it.
When interviewer should take thank – you note into consideration?
The content and the meaning of this special email is what you should pay attention to, not only to the note itself. For instance, when you are in a situation that you have to make a choice between 2 candidates with equal qualifications and background, you should consider their attitude, not only during the recruitment process but also post-interview.
