Jessica Liebman is executive managing editor of the media company Insider Inc. She says no matter how strong someone was in the interview, if they don’t send a thank-you note or email she won’t hire them. It’s a rule she follows no matter how far along is the process.

From the first introductory phone call to the final in-person interview, Liebman will not move someone forward without a thank-you note. Not only does it show the candidate is eager, organized and well mannered, but if you were nervous in the interview or ran out of time it gives you a second chance to argue your point.

But before you fire up the computer Liebman says a good follow-up email has three key points. first things first, make sure you say thank you for the opportunity and for the hiring manager’s time. Also thank that person for sharing more information about the company.
