Thank You, Letters!

Updated: Jan 16, 2021





Thank you, letters play a HUGE role in concluding the interview process. By sending a Thank you, letter, you are acknowledging your appreciation for an employer's time and consideration. It also shows your excitement about the position. Another advantage in sending a Thank you, letter is that it shows a little of your personality and reminds recruiters of who you are!


A few things to remember:

Do your homework before leaving the office complex to get all the needed names and mailing addresses. Better yet, bring a thank you card with you and write it before leaving the premises.


Make sure you personalize your interview thank you letter – include specifics about your interview and let your personality show.


Be sure to spell names, titles and business names correctly. Misspelling your interviewer's name would likely counter the benefit of sending the thank you letter.


Be sure to send within 24 hours after your interview.
