The career services office at a certain university found that its student job applicants who mailed a handwritten thank-you note after a job interview were nearly 40% more likely to receive job offers than were those who used e-mail to express their gratitude for an interview. It stands to reason, then, that if the university could require all of its student job applicants to send handwritten thank-you notes, the university would increase its job placement rate.
Which of the following is an assumption required by the argument?
A) The 40% increase in job offer likelihood was consistent across all industries to which students applied for jobs.
B) No handwritten thank-you notes sent by mail reached their recipients after the decision for a job offer had already been made.
C) Student job applicants were no more likely to send handwritten thank-you notes after interviews they felt were successful than after those that they felt were not.
D) Employers are no more likely to discard a handwritten piece of mail than they are to delete or ignore a piece of unsolicited e-mail.
E) It does not take significantly more time and effort to send a handwritten thank-you note than it does to express gratitude via e-mail
