"I interviewed for a company and got turned down for the job. Because of the advice in Ken’s Interview Follow-Up Guide, I had sent a thank-you note after the interview. A couple months later, I had a call from HR asking if I was interested in a different position. They said that the thank-you note, specifically, really impressed them. I accepted a very exciting job within three days—all because of the thank-you note! I’ve always fancied myself pretty good at interviewing, but I NEVER expected this. Thank you for your help!"
