In speaking or writing, we are talking about ONE letter.
E. Ten Broeck
I am sure you have this heard many times before… but in a job interview every thing you say and do is under consideration and is being analyzed by your potential employer.
At the time of this writing workers are in short supply, and employers may lower the bar in terms of their hiring standards. Ignore this fact for now. You always want to make a good impression. Even if you are not offered the job, or decide not to take the position offered, employers take mental and written notes of candidates that may get future consideration. The point is that, even if there is not an opening for you or your decline an offer; you may have another opportunity in the future with company/firm if you make a favorable impression.
Here are a few words and phrases that will leave a poor impression.
Word or Phrase
Let me know
I look forward to your reply. When may I call you next? May I please ask what are the next steps?
Yes, or yes please. Some people even text Yep, how hard is it to change Yep to Yes?
Pardon me, I did not hear what you said.
Like I said
If you say this to someone, you are implying that they:
a) did not hear you the first time, b) they heard what you said and already forgot and/or c) they are incapable of comprehending what you had said.
I might have mentioned this before… OR Please, I just mentioned this to you…
Also remember that some people have true hearing deficiencies.
