A post interview thank you letter needs to be sent to the specific interviewer. They should reiterate briefly the common ground discussed, and your interest in perusing the position further
Interview thank you letters are a polite courtesy, and an indication to the company of your interest in the position. The company is as curious about your reaction to them as you are about their opinion of you.
Send the interview thank you letter within 2-3 days of the interview. Make sure of the spelling of the person’s name, and your spelling and grammar in the letter. The letter may be sent by regular mail or email, and should be typed not handwritten. Post interview thank you letters give the interviewer a more positive opinion of you, and are a good political move.
Interview thank you letters will not get you the position if the interviewer did not like you. What the letter does is to remind the interviewer of you. He receives the letter, and pulls out your resume to attach it. He then reviews his notes about you, and you are back in his mind while he is still interviewing others. It is a reminder of who and what you are.
We will now provide a sample of a post interview thank you letter. After the letter, we will go over important job search resources that will help you get many more interviews.
