Hand-Written Thank You Notes

This is so not old school. If you really want to stand out from other job candidates, use this strategy. Within an hour after your interview, send an email to your interviewer(s) that is letter-perfect. In the note, make reference to something about your conversation and why you are excited about the position. Then, hand-write a legible, well-written and sincere thank you note and send it via snail mail that will arrive in one or two days. This brief note will bring you to front of mind to the interviewer and will be guaranteed to make you stand out as a serious candidate.

It's a common tradition for people to make resolutions at the beginning of every year. While these goals often focus on health, money and/or family, they can include any number of professional goals as well, such as getting a new job or a promotion.

Are you ready to make a big career move in 2015? Whether you want to land your dream job, earn a long-awaited promotion, or want to change careers entirely, Bonnie Low-Kramen, writing for Glassdoor, has identified 10 ways to step up your game and stand out from the rest in 2015.
