Sample Job Interview Thank You Letter 

    It's always important to say thank you after a job interview.  It's also important to thank everyone you interviewed with. 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 24 hours) after your interview.  If time is of the essence say thank you by email or phone.


    Make an Impression

    According to the York Technical Institute less than 4% of applicants send thank you notes, so, use your letter as a way to stand out from the crowd and make a good impression.


    What You Didn't Say

    If there was something that you wish you had mentioned during the interview, here's your chance to say it by including it in your thank you letter.


    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 jobs, 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.
