One executive manager wrote an article and claimed she had one simple rule when it comes to employing people.
Jessica Liebman took to Twitter and shared her article: “Hey, I wrote something! … I’ve been hiring people for 10 years, and I still swear by a simple rule: If someone doesn’t send a thank you email, don’t hire them.” She also added a link to her article posted on Business Insider.
In her article, she said: “As a hiring manager, you should always expect a thank-you email, and you should never make an offer to someone who neglected to send one.”
Her post started a long debate online on whether or not it is okay to judge someone based only on their knowledge of unwritten rules and social skills.

Melissa Hope tweeted: “It’s professional courtesy to send a thank you email. Plenty of people with talent out there who still have manners.”
Most people were furious. They tweeted:
