Besides sending a thank you note after an interview, is there anything you can do to convince the job manager that you’re capable of doing the job?

A pre thank you note, to alert them that a thank you note is forthcoming, is a nice gesture. Some have opted for a pre interview thank you note as well - this can help avoid the confusion about whether you really even want the interview in the first place. Maybe a commemorative gift basket summarizing your experience and the 45 minutes you spent together… (or 8 hours if it’s Amazon)

Gosh, I always assume people are trolling… but maybe you’re really asking. I like to close with that exact question. Do you have any questions about my resume or qualifications to fill this role?

To be honest - this is kinda making me feel - "hanging off the cliff". 😶 Anyone would like to share any thoughts/opinions ?

I applied for an engineering manager role at a fast scaling startup. My second interview went very well to the point where the manager told me to connect on LinkedIn in case I have more questions and the internal recruiter should get back to me soon.

It's now Monday and I am wondering how long I should wait before reaching out again if at all?

I'm not sure if this is just anecdotal or more wide spread...do people with more technical backgrounds tend to have very poor communication skills? The 5 or so people I've worked with on projects have indisputably lacked communication skills to the point of multiple teammates becoming angry and/or rolling off. Am I attributing too much to that common denominator? If not-is there a better way for me to try to work with those groups so that everyone can be successful?
