Isn’t that what interviewers want? To be treated like a prince, a king, a God maybe?
To be treated like a prince, a king, a God maybe?
Ah, you’re right. Maybe not.
Sometimes we feel the need to go the extra mile to stand out, be noticed, be appreciated, and yes, maybe even appear needy … less than … deserving … subservient … okay, I’m done.
I don’t know about you, but I do like being treated specially, although I wouldn’t want someone to kiss my toes or feet. Seems icky to me.
Sending a thank-you letter could be compared to kissing someone’s feet. After all, it’s been seen as a sign of appreciation and respect, although some might feel it’s a sign of servitude, weakness, or inferiority. Sometimes vying for a job does make us feel out of control — and when our job search isn’t going well, we feel substandard, unwanted, and a slew of other feelings.
Facing the task of writing a thank-you note, however, is a terrific problem at this point. It means your job-search is moving, producing results … even if a formal job offer might not be on the table as yet.
