5.4 Discussion and Activities
Rachel Dolechek and Rose Helens-Hart
5.4.1. Hand-written thank you message
Imagine you have just completed a great interview. When might it be appropriate to send a hand-written thank you message? Draft a hand-written thank you message.
5.4.2. “Ghosting”: Inquiry to the employer
Employer “ghosting” is not only happening, but it is increasing. Being ghosted by a potential employer may seem unprofessional (Deichler, 2021). Using the job offer inquiry suggestions, draft a message to the potential employer.
5.4.3. Creating a buffer
A buffer can be used when developing a written job offer decline (Bovee & Thill, 2019). Imagine you are needing to decline a job offer. Develop three different buffers that could be used to start your message.
