Dear Experts, Does every little e-mail from a prospective employer need to be replied to? (i.e. Interview confirmations/itineraries, small notes about phone/in person interviews) Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#207 I'm sure most would say that you don't need 2 reply, but I say reply. It keeps the door open for networking oppt. (@kgrantcareers) Q#207 Agree with @dawnbugni , short confirmations are appropriate. (@gradversity) Q#207 Doesn't hurt 2 acknowledge communicatns; show ur responsive, elim uncertainty, stay top of emplyr mind. (@juliaerickson) Q#207 I'm a fan of acknowledging receipt of documents & information. "Thanks or Got it" removes guess work. (@dawnbugni) Q#207 No, every email does not require a response. Confirm an interview. Otherwise, no need unless something requires it. (@DebraWheatman) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
