You check your e-mail and find a message from a job interviewer you met two days ago. Before you even open it, the title “Thank You” tells you what it means: Someone else got the position you wanted. “What could I have done better?” you ask yourself. “I was sure I had everything they were looking for.”
What you say in an interview (and how you say it) can make the difference between “You’re hired!” and “We’ve decided to go in another direction.” To change the outcome of your career search, all you need is one little word.
