Graduation Party Ideas during Covid

8 May

It’s May which means it’s graduation season!  Whether they’re graduating from high school or college, this last year has been a challenge to say the least.  Since many people are not having traditional graduation parties, you can still celebrate your graduate with these fun ideas.

Celebrate OutdoorsPersonalized graduation party supplies

Host your grad party at a public park or in your backyard.  Set up tables at least six feet apart and have your guests seated at tables where they can socially distance.  You can have food individually boxed or put in individual cups or pre-plated so that you keep contamination to a minimum.  We love our personalized graduation party supplies that make it easy {and fun!} to celebrate the grad.

Send an Announcement

Personalized graduation announcement

If you don’t feel comfortable with celebrating in-person, you can still let friends and family know that your child has graduated with a personalized graduation announcement.  You can let them know where to send well wishes in lieu of a personal gathering.

Drive-By

A fun {and safe} way to celebrate your grad is hosting a drive-by grad party.  You can decorate your lawn and let friends and family know when they can safely drive-by to wish your grad congratulations.  You can have a lot of fun with decorating your yard with personalized graduation balloons, signs and streamers.

Personalized graduation gable boxes

You could also set-up a small table to hand out personalized graduation favors to your “guests” as they wish you well!

From everyone at The Stationery Studio, Congrats to the class of 2021 no matter how you celebrate!

Best Interview Thank You Note Tips

19 Jun

Thank You NoteWhether you are interviewing for your first job out of college or your third job in your career, a thank you note is a must. A handwritten thank you note is a great way to thank the interviewer for their time.  It helps you stand out from other applicants.  While it is easy to send an email or text to follow up with an interview, a handwritten thank you note is best. (Note: If a job decision is being made within a short time period, an email thank you note would suffice.)  We’ve put together some tips for writing the thank you note to help you land your next job.

What do I write?

  • Thank the interviewer for their time.
  • Summarize the interview.
  • Highlight what you can bring to the position.
  • Let the interviewer know that you are interested in the job.

8 Thank You Note and Follow-up Tips

  1. Ask the interviewer for a business card so you have their spelling and mailing address.
  2. Do a rough-draft of your thank you note before you use your stationery.
  3. Have a friend or family member proofread your note to make sure it sounds sincere and professional.
  4. Write your thank you note on quality stationery.
  5. Mail your thank you note within 24 hours after the interview.
  6. While employers do not always follow-up after an interview, the thank you note is a good reminder that you appreciate their time and are interested in the position. You will make a positive impression when sending a follow-up thank you note.
  7. If the interviewer provided you with a timetable for follow-up, honor it.  Perhaps they said they will get back to you within 2 weeks.  After sending the thank you note, allow the company the time they anticipated for follow-up before you contact them by phone or email.
  8. If you do not hear back from the interview after the period of time the interviewer estimated, it is a good idea to e-mail or call them to discuss whether the job is still available and to express that you are still interested.
