Job Interview Follow Up Letter

  • By | Comments Off

    How to write a job interview follow up letter? You have just left a job interview and it’s a position you would love to be offered. What more can you do after the interview is over?

    How can you take steps to enhance your chances of a follow-on interview or the job itself?  Well, there is an opportunity and that is by way of a follow-up letter.

    It allows you to do several things apart from extending the basic courtesy of thanking the interviewer for taking the time to meet with you.

    A job interview follow up letter allows you to reiterate your interest in the position, reinforce your credentials for the position, demonstrate your communication, and also to mention things that you wished you had said but hadn’t during the interview.

    There are, however, a few things one should note when sending the job interview follow up letter.

    • Keep the letter short.
    • Send the letter immediately or within 24 hours of the interview.
    • Proof-read the letter and ensure that it is error-free, short and sweet. While proof-reading verify the spelling of the person’s name and designation. This is necessary to ensure that the letter becomes personal.
    • Ensure that you include some actual reference from the job interview. This is so as not to make the letter look like a standard template.
