Tips For Writing Effective Interview Thank You Letters

You’ve just finished interviewing for your dream job. There’s nothing more you can do than wait for the phone to ring, right? Wrong. To increase your chances of getting a job offer, you need to follow up with an effective interview thank you letter. If written correctly, an effective interview thank you letter can be used to separate you from your competition.

Remember, the main point of sending a thank you letter after an interview is to help you stand out in an employer’s eyes. Most of your competition won’t take the time to send a thank you letter. Those who do won’t write an effective thank you letter to sell them to an employer.

Key Points to Consider

Here are some key points to consider when developing your post-interview thank you letter:

·Write a thank you letter to each person you met with

·Send your thank you letter as soon as possible – the day of or the day after the interview

·To ensure a timely delivery, e-mail your thank you letter, if possible

·Ask for business cards from each person you meet with during your interview to gather the appropriate e-mail addresses to use with your thank you letters

What to Include in Your Post Interview Thank You Letter

As you’re writing your thank you letter, be sure to incorporate the following:

·Keep your thank you letter to no more than one page

·Start by thanking the interviewer for meeting with you

·Express your interest in the position

·Identify your strongest selling points and reiterate them in your thank you letter

·Cover any key points you forgot to mention in the interview, but know would increase your chances of receiving a job offer

·Close by again thanking the interviewer for their time, expressing your interest in the position, and indicating you hope to hear from them soon

Interview thank you letters can gain you job offers by giving you one more opportunity to present your strongest selling points to a potential employer and an opportunity to present important information you forgot to mention during the interview.

Take the time to write a thank you letter after your interview to help you land your dream job.
