Do You Send Thank You Letters After the Interview?

Do you send out thank you letters after an interview?  If you do not, you are missing out on an opportunity to put yourself in front of the hiring employer before they make their final decisions.  The thank you letter can remind them of who you are and what you might offer the company.

You can use a template to make putting your interview letter together.  Once  you have a template you can simply modify it so that it will suit the company that you have had an interview with.

Here is a template that you can use and modify to suit your job skills.

Dear Name, 
I enjoyed the chance to visit with you in your office today concerning career opportunities with ABC Company.  After discussing the future of the company I am convinced that I can make a positive contribution, and believe our association could be mutually beneficial. 
I was especially impressed with the information you provided concerning expansion into other markets and a need for an invigorated marketing effort.  With my background in advertising and insurance sales and experience as a carnival promoter, I believe I have a lot to offer. 
ABC Company has an outstanding reputation in the field and is the type of organization I wish to associate myself with.  I pride myself on being an outstanding salesman and promotional specialist, and look forward to a chance to make a positive contribution during this period of growth. 
If I can provide any more information that would be of assistance to you, please don’t hesitate to call me at the phone number listed above, or email me if that is more convenient.  I look forward to hearing from you in the near future. 
Again, thank you for your time. 

John J. Doe.

Keep in mind that you will need to modify the letter according the type of position that you have applied for.  If you are not applying for a job in sales or marketing, you will have to change skills to suit the requirements of your field. 

A couple of things to remember:
  • Keep it simple.
  • Keep it short.
  • Don’t bring up new information .
  • Remember what you said in the interview.
