Your letter makes some great points and I suppose serves to refresh the hiring manager’s memory if you are one of many candidates being seriously considered. I work for a NYC based startup, have hired about 40 marketing, biz dev and support staff in 2015, likely will hire another 18-20 by year end. This is typical of my experience over the past 8-9 years at 2 startups. I can’t imagine an instance where a follow up/ TY note was a significant piece of my decision making or the tipping point for one candidate vs another or led me to reconsideri a candidate. Typically both I and the candidate know instinctively (if it hasn’t been expressly discussed) if and what the next step will be when she/he and I shake hands and say goodbye. In this time of mega info overload, screens in front of our faces day in and out, I would have a very negative feeling upon opening this email and seeing 500-600 words in a thank you “note” I believe this is a place for less is more. Thanks.
The residential component of the program ensures that there are ample opportunities for you to network with your fellow classmates, as well as with the faculty, during program weekends. Eating meals together, meeting with study groups, and getting together for informal sports and recreation outside of class are all ways that students bond beyond the classroom. You will meet alumni as class guests and through occasional program-sponsored events. And as Wharton students, you can also begin to take part in the activities of Wharton alumni clubs located in or near your own city.
ON THIS DAY
When Feb. 19, 2017
Where Vista West Ranch, Dripping Springs, Tex.
Lone Star State Charm Mr. Nurmohamed and Ms. Nooruddin were framed by Texas live oaks and stood in front of a multicolored floral arch, with a view of the Central Texas Hill Country. Pink rose petals were scattered across the pathway.
The Dance After vows were exchanged, the ceremony shifted inside, where the newlyweds danced for the first time as husband and wife. A violinist played “Hold On, We’re Going Home” by Drake.
The Cuisine A dinner was catered by the Salt Lick, a restaurant in the Austin-area community of Driftwood that has been dishing out Texas barbecue for a half-century. Only for this East-Meets-West occasion, it was billed on the menu as Bollywood Barbecue.
No Cake, but … For dessert, the guests marched outside to a shiny Airstream trailer operated by Gourdough’s, an Austin public house known for specialty doughnuts with names like Fat Elvis, Porkeys and Son of a Peach. The offerings were renamed for the wedding party, but the calorie count remained the same.
