People have asked us for interview thank you letter samples, so here are some sample interview thank you notes.
You should always write a thank you letter after a job interview. It is the professional thing to do, and it makes you stand out from many other applicants, who may not write a thank you note. Use these sample interview thank you notes as a guide, but don’t just copy them; write your own letter based on your own interview and the type of job you are seeking.
Type your letters the way these interview thank you letter samples are typed. Don’t handwrite them.
Dear Ms. Baker:
I thank you for taking the time to meet with me on Wednesday. Meadowbrook Nursing Home seems like a wonderful facility, and I would be pleased to practice my nursing skills there. I love the special programs you have for the residents - the arts and crafts program, the garden, and the community newsletter are all wonderful.
Please feel free to contact me if you require any additional information. You can reach me at 219-555-4321. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Dear Mr. Herring:
I enjoyed meeting with you to discuss the management position with Starline Hotels. As we discussed, I have a great deal of management experience in a variety of venues, and I believe I would be a valuable asset to Starline Hotels. I also believe I would enjoy the challenge of managing a group of fine hotels such as Starline.
If you need any further information about me, you may phone me at 419-555-1234. I’m looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Notice how in these interview thank you letter samples, the writers compliment the employers. Shirley Barber calls the Meadowbrook Nursing Home a wonderful facility and goes on to mention some of its special programs, and David Pauley calls Starline a group of fine hotels.
Mentioning the special programs at the nursing home is an especially good move, because it shows that Shirley was paying attention at the interview and that she is really interested in the job. Showing that you know something about the company at which you are applying is always a good thing. Ask questions at the interview. You can also try looking up the company online before going to the interview, to prepare yourself.
In these sample interview thank you notes, the applicants say that they’d like to work for the company. Shirley would be pleased to practice her nursing skills at Meadowbrook, and David would enjoy the challenge of working for Starline. Let the prospective employer know you want the job.
You’ll also notice that in these sample interview thank you notes the writers include a telephone number where they can be reached. That makes it easy for the interviewer to contact you for a second interview if necessary. He or she does not have to search for your resume. You want to make it as easy as possible for the interviewer to reach you.
Finally, you will notice that in these interview thank you letter samples both applicants end by saying they look forward to hearing from the interviewer soon. You always want to end your thank you letter that way. You want to come across as confident that you will get a call back.
We hope these sample interview thank you notes help you in your job search. You’ll need a good resume and good interviewing skills, but a good thank you note can help you close the deal.
