Thank You Letter or Follow Up Letter

It's always important to say thank you after a job interview and after a second interview as well. It's also important to thank everyone you interviewed with and everyone who assisted with your job search. Here are some tips on who you should thank and the best way to thank them.

Act Fast

Plan to send out your thank you letters as soon as possible (preferably within twenty-four hours) after your interview.

Group Letters

Are individual notes appropriate or should you write a group letter?  If there was a great deal of similarity, perhaps a "group" letter will suffice. If so, address all the people on a master letter and add a personal note to each. Otherwise, send a personalized letter to each interviewer.

Thank You Letter Basics

Thank you letters can be handwritten, typed or sent via email.  Each thank you letter should include a thank you for the interview, your interest in the job, your qualifications and skills, and a final thank you.

Short and Simple

Keep your thank you letters short and simple, but do use the letter to reiterate your interest in the job, your enthusiasm for the company and to sell yourself as the ideal candidate.

Proof Your Letter

Spell check and proof your thank you letter. Then ask someone else to proof it for you. That way you will be sure it's perfect
