Following up Your Interview with a Thank You Letter

It’s always a good idea to follow up an interview with a thank you letter. Your letter should typically be sent within the first 24 hours following your interview. The sooner the letter is sent, the better the chances are to make another good impression on the interviewer before they make their decision.

As well as giving you the opportunity to express appreciation for their time and interest, it gives you a chance to reiterate your enthusiasm and touch upon anything you might have failed to mention. And simply, it shows your professionalism! But remember, this is a thank you letter not a sales pitch, so keep it short and straight to the point.

This is a business you are sending it to so whether you choose to snail mail or email it, the formatting is still important. Your email should look professional and be treated as imporantly as your resume and cover letter. Finally, remember to proofread prior to sending it off, you want to avoid any grammatical errors; typos etc…!
