Emily Post would agree that writing a thank-you note after an interview is a must. It doesn't just showcase a candidate's manners - it can also make or break their chances of landing a job.

Nearly 15 percent of hiring managers say they would not hire someone who failed to send a thank-you letter after the interview. And, 32 percent say they would still consider the candidate, but would think less of him or her, according to CareerBuilder.com's "How to Get in the Front Door" survey.
