Taking Notes in an Interview, it’s a Must!

There are a few books and bloggers out there that claim you shouldn't take notes during an interview.  I am here to tell you that advice is wrong.  While you don’t want to sit and take notes constantly as if you are copying the interviewers every word, you can take notes on the most salient points of the conversation, including skills and tasks they most want from a candidate, salary info, benefits, your managers management style, and what they think the most important part of your job will be ultimately.  You cannot possibly remember every part of an interview conversation without taking a few notes on the most important facts.  Not having notes will keep you from writing the best possible thank you note, and it will mean you have no reference of information for the next step of the process, often a second interview.  Take notes, the interviewers expect you to, and having them will help you to make the best decision for your career.  To your interview success!
