In this week’s edition of Well,This Happened, the series that lets you become a career coach, we addressed Juan’s unfortunate error while following up on a job interview.
Juan recently had a job interview where he felt that he connected well with the hiring manager and sent a thank you note in hopes of continuing the good impression he made. Unfortunately, he wrote the thank you note in his car and realized after sending it that auto correct had screwed up a couple of phrases in the email and made entire sections of the thank you note make no sense.
Juan went from feeling good about the job interview to now thinking that he may have hurt his chances of moving forward in the hiring process. Juan is excited about this job opportunity and doesn’t want this mistake to cost him the opportunity.
Ouch! This is a tough one! Earlier this week we gave four possible options for addressing this situation.
