Thank you, thank you

One of the best things you can do as a student or employee is write someone a thank you note after they've done something helpful for you.

I was pleasantly surprised to find a hand written note from a student thanking me for a reference letter I wrote for them. This was immediately followed by a thoughtful note from an editor thanking me for a review.

These two things made my day.

Kudos, student and editor!

  1. I like those letters too, but what I'd like even more is the students letting me know if they got what they applied for. It would make me feel good to know that my letter may have made a difference.
