The "Thank You Note"
Writing a "Thank You Note" is the one thing that candidates either forget to do or underestimate the value. A job interview gives you the chance to position yourself as a strong candidate for the role. Writing a thank-you letter after the interview allows you to continue to make a good impression on the potential employer. There are many ways to send such a note, but in todays world one typically sends an email. If you email your thank-you note, you need a subject line that easily conveys your message. A short and straightforward subject line like “Thank you for your time” can work for most post-interview thank-you notes. If you plan to write a more informal message, try something like “Great to meet you today.” Provide a short recap of your experience and background. The interviewer should already be aware of these qualifications after reading your resume and meeting with you, so this section should be brief. Connect your qualifications to the position and its unique requirements to express why you are such a strong candidate for the job. For example, you can write, “My social media and search engine marketing expertise would make me an excellent candidate for this marketing role.” The thank you letter also gives you an opportunity to mention something and you may have forgotten to mention during the interview (skill wise). In closing sign off with you complete name, email address and phone number. Remember, it is always important to make a great impression.
