Job Interview Thank You Letter

  • By | Comments Off

    After you have interviewed for a job, it is a plus to send a thank you letter to the person or group for whom you interviewed.  This gesture shows that you are still interested in the position, keeps your name on the minds of the interviewers, and also offers you an opportunity to further make your case about why you are the person they want to hire.

    Write the letter the same day that you interview, or as soon as you can, so it will be received within a day or two after the interview.

    Be extra diligent to spell the name of the company and the names of the interviewers correctly.  If you are not sure, it is acceptable to contact the person who set up the interview, whether in-house or from a recruiting or job placement agency.

    Include the name of position and date you interviewed along with the names of those who were present during the interview. Compliment the company or organization.

    Offer some facts that you learned about the company during your interview to show that you were paying attention and are really interested in the job. Use any new information you discovered to link you education or experience.

    Dear (Interviewer Name),

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the opportunity to interview for the position of (position name) at (company name) on January 30, 2012. It was a pleasure to meet with you and Human Resource Manager, Mrs. Allen.

    Although I was familiar with the (company name), it was a learning experience to discuss the company and your goals for the future of the company. The directions you mentioned were impressive, especially the goal of becoming a completely self-sufficient energy source within the next five years.

    I am very confident that my Master’s Degree in Safety Engineering for manufacturing and construction industries, as well as my training in the wind turbine energy field, would be an asset to your company.

    It is exciting to discover that you are looking for someone who is interested in continuing to learn and put that knowledge to use for the benefit of your company and its employees.

    Thank you again Mr. / Mrs. (interviewer name), for a great interview experience. I hope to hear from you soon about the possibility of the second interview that will include some of the staff I would be working with if I am offered this position.

    Yours Sincerely,

    _______________
