Job Interviews: One Way to Outshine Competitors


Manners Give Job Applicants a Competitive Advantage

You know the old saying that common courtesy goes a long way?

Well, it's true - especially when it comes to finding a legal job.

Think about this: When was the last time you wrote a handwritten thank you note or even a thank-you email to a prospective employer?
