To help you understand what employers want, we put some burning questions for job hunters to them.

Stephen Cole is Managing Director of Cole Advertising and Design. We asked …

What makes a good impression after an interview?

‘Less people do this than we would like,’ says Stephen. ‘But after an interview, the people who remember to say thank you always stick in our minds.

'Even if it’s just an email or note saying, regardless of whether they get the job or not, thanks for meeting with them.

‘That’s a major plus for us – the fact that they’ve taken the time to say thanks. It shows a bit of respect and common courtesy, and it’s something we always remember.’
