Many companies are actively hiring, especially now that we are in the busy summer construction season. And while the interview process is, of course, extremely important to get right, sending a thoughtful thank you email can often push you to the top of the consideration list and land you the job.

Here are a few key elements and tips to include in every thank you letter.

What to Include: A few things you’ll want to include in your email are a subject, personalized introduction, note of appreciation for their time, a recap of your qualifications and ways you could be of benefit, information for next steps, and additional ways to contact you.

Subject Line: In your subject line, you want to include a short message to say thank you, and maybe even remind them of who you are. Employers are often quite busy interviewing many candidates and receiving dozens of emails in a day, that by the end of the day they might not exactly remember how you met, that’s why you want to include this in your Subject Line. This way they are more inclined, not only to read the email but to remember before even opening, for example: “Thank You For the Interview” or “I Appreciate Your Time Today.

Introduction: Since you’ve met you want to introduce the email using the name the interviewer gave you, for example: “Good Afternoon/Good Morning (Insert Name Here)” or “Hello (Insert Name Here).” This just lets the interviewer know that you remember what they said and makes the email a more personalized experience for them.

Note of Appreciation: You’ll want to start the email by thanking the recruiter for their time. You could include the position title or something specific from the interview as a way of thanking them, for example: “It was a pleasure speaking with you today regarding the management position, I enjoyed discussing the needs of this role and how we can help the company excel…etc.” This allows for the interviewer to recall specific moments of the interview and lets them know you are truly interested in the position.

Recap: Next you want to recap your qualification and let them know why you would be a great fit for the position. Be sure to again mention something specific that you discussed in the interview and expand on it in the email, but in a concise manner. You want to be sure that this section is brief as they should have some notes on you already.

Information for Next Steps: If you had not discussed it already, you’ll want to follow up with the recruiter to find out the next steps and potential timeline so that you know what to expect next. If you have already discussed this at the end of the interview, you can let the employer know that you look forward to speaking with them in the next coming days or weeks, depending on what they mentioned for their timeline. This shows interest in the position and encourages the employer to reach back out to you, for better or worse.

Additional Ways to Contact: Finally, you want to give the recruiter a few additional ways to contact you if needed, for example, your phone number, in case they don’t already have it, or so that they can easily find it to follow up or make an offer. Let the recruiter know that you are available for any additional information or questions that they may have and that you look forward to speaking again.

Following these steps can help you create a thank you email that makes a good impression and hopefully a lasting impact on an employer. Often these follow-up emails are overlooked, but they are an essential part of the interviewing process and should be treated as such, so be sure to include the above points and make it personal to the hiring manager so that you stay on their mind during the selection process.

According to a model developed by the Associated Builders and Contractors, the construction industry will need to attract nearly 650,000 additional workers on top of the normal hiring pace in 2022 to meet the demand for labor. Studies show that this demand will be long lasting with the number of construction jobs expected to grow 11% between 2016 and 2026. With these numbers in mind, it may be a great time to consider a career in construction.

Do I need experience?

Formal training or experience is not required to get an entry-level construction job. Additionally, most employers offer training that allows employees to quickly get up to speed and gain valuable experience in high demand fields.

Within 2 years of its release on the App Store, TikTok became the most downloaded app with over 1 billion active monthly users. Since its creation, the app has truly transformed into a key marketing tool for businesses, brands, and even recruiters. That’s because the methodology for TikTok is simple: create engaging content. Whether it’s sharing those still popular dance videos or sharing an interesting tidbit about your product or service, TikTok’s algorithm will push your content to the right viewers and in turn, potentially help you get viral and reach new audiences.

So how does this help recruiters you ask? Well, if you’re hiring, chances are many of your candidates are already utilizing TikTok. Because of this, reaching out to your audience via TikTok can be a great way to recruit candidates and get your name out there. Companies like DuoLingo have mastered this by showing what a day in the life of their company looks like while creating funny and trendy content. But before you begin your engagement on TikTok you’ll want to do some research into what topics are trending on the app in your specialty. A great way to do this is by browsing relevant hashtags, such as #construction or #plumbersoftiktok, which have 23.1 billion and 342 million views respectively. Once you can get an idea of what topics are trending in your specialty, you can use this knowledge to create engaging content of your own. As a bonus, be sure to use those same hashtags in the caption of your post to boost engagement and chances of landing on the sought-after “For You Page,” i.e. where viral videos usually wind up.

Once you have an idea for what type of content to post, a few other key tips to get your videos seen are to utilize trending sounds and filters. Oftentimes TikTok will push the use of these trending sounds to users which will ultimately boost your engagement. So be sure to stay in the know of what’s trending.

It is also good practice to share content that revolves around your employees. Users and potential candidates want to know what it’s like to work for your company before they apply, so creating some content that features current workers can be very helpful. This can be anywhere from a day-in-the-life type of video to an explanation of why they enjoy working for the company or their job in general.

Some of your employees may create their own content, and you never know, one of them could have become viral/an influencer. If that is the case in your business, it’s never a bad idea to encourage their creativity by partnering with them on your company account. Your employee can then even take over your company account and create content that way sharing your business to their viewers that are already engaging with them. Even if you don’t have an influencer employee, you can also try to reach out to existing influencers that you enjoy the content of or that align with your companies goals to try and partner to share more about your brand, both of these strategies have been effective with brands like American Eagle, Aerie, and Kum&Go Convenience stores.

If your budget allows it you can even consider promoted posts on TikTok which have been proven extremely successful for many users. Alongside these, brands have come up with creative hashtags and challenges for other users to use and attempt to create a stream of potentially viral videos. For example, American Eagle’s brand Aerie created the #AerieREAL challenge which encouraged users to share videos of themselves feeling “real” while utilizing the hashtag. The company promoted a few of these posts of their own and ones where they partnered with influencers gaining a lot of traction and resulting in 8.4 billion videos using the hashtag.

The key to TikTok is truly about getting creative along with using the tips and tricks from above. While you may not go viral on every video, you’ll likely reach a much wider audience of candidates who are interested in working for your company and filling your open positions much faster.

While many jobs and workplaces have had to make Covid-19 appropriate changes to their workforce. None have changed quite as much as the healthcare industry. With increased focus on patient health, implementation of dozens of new safety precautions, and a huge increase in work demands, it can be extremely hard to keep up with and maintain good personal mental health. That’s why we’ve compiled a few ways you can give yourself a mental health check in order to keep you focused and feeling less overwhelmed.

Deep Breaths: While it may be easier said than done, try to find about 10 minutes in your day or when you’re starting to feel overwhelmed and just take a few deep breaths to clear your head. Sometimes just focusing back on ourselves and taking a moment to clear our minds can drastically change the way our day is going. If you have the ability, try taking a quick break out to your car and just sit and breathe.

Time to Yourself: On your days off, try to prioritize yourself. Take the day to do something you love and leave your phone in your pocket so you have less distractions while doing so. Whether it’s a good yoga class, a hike, or just staying home and watching your favorite streaming service, take the day and relax while doing something mindless, if that’s what you like.

Be Mindful Of Your Basic Needs: 4 words: hydration, rest, nutrition, exercise. When feeling so busy and overwhelmed it can be difficult to remember to take care of your own body. You may often find yourself wondering when your last meal was, but knowing you don’t have time for one right now, but try to be more mindful of giving yourself the nutrients you need to move forward. Especially when you’re running a mile a minute, maybe literally, please remember to drink water so that your body runs at its peak performance to keep you going. On your days off, or hours away from home try to remember to get enough rest, try not to think too hard about things going on at work as they’ll be there for you the next day. Getting a full night of restful sleep can mentally prepare you to tackle almost anything the next day. And as a way to keep your body running smoothly while undergoing a lot of stress, try using exercise as an outlet. This can ease your mind and tension, while keeping you in shape and healthy.

Talk to Someone:  Whether it be a family member, friend, or a professional, try to talk to someone about your current situation. Oftentimes talking about things out loud will allow you to letgo and not worry so much about them. At the end of the day we are all humans and make mistakes, but being able to talk about them will take focus off of them and ease your worry. You don’t even have to talk about work stress, but just having a human connection with someone you may not be able to see can really be grounding and bring you back to reality.

While those in the healthcare industry are working extremely hard to keep us safe, we hope our healthcare friends utilize the tips and tricks to stay calm and try not to feel so overwhelmed.We give major kudos to our friends in the healthcare industry and know that we truly could not be making it through the pandemic or life without you.

While working from home may seem like a dream; you get to stay in cozy clothes, brew at-home fresh coffee, hang out with your pets, and just be in your own space, it can become easier to experience burn out.

According to Megan Brenun, with Gallup News, 62% of employed Americans said they were working from home from the end of March to the beginning of April, an increase of 39% from just a few short weeks before. That is a lot more people adjusting to a new way of working in such a short period and what used to be a benefit has now become survival.

Working from home means our normal 9-5 routines are now shifted and we are mixing in house chores with job tasks leading to confusion between personal time and work time. Because of this, more of those that are working from home are taking fewer days off and not planning time to be away from work. And while not having to commute and being able to wear sweatpants all day seems like a dream, taking a break from your emails and your computer is just as important.

So how do you stay on task with so many things going on around you? Schedule and Prioritize. Even though you’re home and it’s easy to wake up late and just roll out of bed onto your computer or phone, it’s good to keep your normal routine as if you were going into the office, taking a morning shower, brewing the coffee, watching the news, and get dressed for a day in the office before you head to your work from home station. This will help you stick to your normal day-to-day routine and set you up for a more focused day. Additionally, working within your normal 9-5 office hours will help you disconnect work from home leisure thus giving you back more time to relax and work while you’re scheduled.

In addition to scheduling your day as normal, it is also helpful to dress for success. In this study, titled “The Cognitive Consequences of Formal Clothing,” research showed that wearing formal clothing increases productivity and changes how we perceive the day ahead. So, whether you have a Zoom call or not, it’s a smart idea to increase your productivity and focus by dressing in your usual office wear.

Arguably, one of the most important parts about working in the office that has been removed is social interaction and accountability from coworkers. Not only to keep up with the workplace gossip and client notes but also to hold each other accountable for your work and the feeling of having a supportive environment. It’s important to have people you see regularly to keep you feeling supported in work and to be able to read how you may be feeling before burn out. But since we are at home and lacking this social interaction it’s more important than ever to become self-aware. If you start to feel yourself becoming burnt out, consider speaking with your manager/boss about ways you can become recommitted to your position, or consider a fun video chat with coworkers to catch up on some things outside of work. Additionally, everyday stress relievers such as taking a walk, practicing deep breathing exercises, and meditation are always helpful to get you back on track.

During these times, it is also just as important to check in on your coworkers as they are going through the same thing and, everyone handles these situations differently.
